The President of the University Teachers Association of Ghana (UTAG), Professor Charles Marfo has asked government to consider giving universities the opportunity to reopen with strategies to keep students safe.
Schools in the country were ordered to shut down after a directive from President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo on March 15, 2020, as part of measures to stop the further spread of the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in the country.
The schools have remained shut for close to six months now.
Meanwhile, discussions on when the schools will reopen have dominated national discourse in recent times.
While the Ghana National Council of Private Schools (GNACOPS) had argued that it is prudent for government to reopen schools, the teacher unions have kicked against such proposals.
