Member of Parliament (MP) for Ningo Prapram, Sam Nettey George, has decided not to allow his children go back to school following the reopening of schools after a long break due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Per the President’s announcement in his address, schools have been reopened after thorough consultations with medical experts and other stakeholders.

But Mr George, who is a lawmaker, has announced that he will not allow his children go back to school as schools reopen today, January 18, 2020.

According to him, this is after consultation with Senior Medical officers and his wife.

He said it is better his children miss their grades rather than lose their lives to the deadly COVID-19 pandemic.

The lawmaker said in a post on Facebook that: “After deep reflection and consultation with Senior Medical professionals, my wife and I have decided that our children would NOT be going to school on Monday or anytime soon. As said earlier, better a missed grade than a grave.”
