Sanction heads of schools that violate safety protocols – NAHSAG urges GES

Must Read

The National Health Students Association of Ghana, NAHSAG, has admonished the Ghana Education Service to deal with any head of an institution that goes against the laid down protocols instituted to safeguard the lives of students.

The Association is of the view that with the increasing cases of COVID-19 in Senior High Schools, it has become essential for heads of institutions to strictly enforce the protocols declared by GES and health authorities, particularly, ensure political actors do not take advantage of the ongoing voter registration exercise to mingle with students.

Their call comes after pictures of New Patriotic Party’s National Youth Organiser was seen in viral pictures addressing some students of the Kumasi Anglican Senior High School.

Henry Nana Boakye has denied campaigning to the students or breaking any of the stipulated protocols.

However, in a press release stating their disappointment and urging GES to take decisive actions against heads of institutions who grant permissions to politically exposed persons, NAHSAG President Moses Bondong insisted, “we find the act carried out by Henry Nana Boakye (Nana B) and his team at KASS as a morally reprehensible and reckless act which needlessly endangers the safety, health and lives of the students.”

“NAHSAG in no uncertain terms condemn this despicable act and we call on all well-meaning Ghanaians to speak against it. If even parents are not allowed to visit their wards in schools for safety protocol reasons, then political actors should have no business putting the lives of these innocent students in avoidable danger.

“We call the Ghana Education Service (GES) to quickly sanction the head(s) of any institution that violates the safety protocols put forward to safeguard our dear students. We must not condone any such breaches of the safety protocols,” Moses Mwinkuma Bondong, NAHSAG President.
