Okyeame Kwame Questions Akufo-Addo’s Decision to Reopen Schools

Award-winning Ghanaian rapper, Okyeame Kwame has questioned the decision of the Ghanaian government to reopen schools amid rising cases of COVID-19.

The musician has questioned whether it is safe for children to go back to school in such a time. He made these comments in a recent interview on Kastle FM.

“As for this question by your kind courtesy I can’t respond to it because it’s too difficult. This is something that the President himself has said that we should take our kids back to school.

“I don’t know to which extent that they’ve researched to conclude that we should take our kids back to school. So if I should answer your question as to whether it is safe to take our kids to school in the midst of the coronavirus then it means I am an expert in education or health,” Okyeame Kwame said.

“Meanwhile I’m not an expert in both fields so by your kind courtesy please forgive me because I can’t respond,” He added.

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo in his 21st COVID-19 address to the nation on Sunday, January 3, 2021, noted that adequate measures have been put in place to make schools safe for pupils to go back.

This directive to reopen schools have been met with divergent views as some people contemplate the consequences of allowing children to return to school in the midst of the hike in COVID-19 cases with several deaths recorded as well.
