North Tongu, MP Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa says government should reconsider its policy on the reopening of schools amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

The former deputy Education Minister wants schools to re-shut because students have started testing positive for the virus.

Earlier in the week, it was reported that six students from Accra Girls Senior High School tested positive for the virus and out of fear, parents trooped to the school to withdraw their children.

Speaking on the Super Morning Show on Thursday, Mr Okudzeto Ablakwa disclosed that concerned parents from his constituency have been calling him about their wards being in school.

“Parents keep calling and you have no idea the headache, it’s considerable fear, especially among the mothers. They can’t sleep,” he said.
