The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of one of Ghana’s finest estate developing companies, KOANS Estates, Kofi Anokye, has called on President Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo Addo to as matter of urgency allow children to go back to school and learn.
He further underscored the need for President Nana Addo to disregard calls from various individuals and organizations calling for the continued stay of children at home, and rather use his power and direct for the children to go back to their various classrooms and learn.
He noted the COVID-19 pandemic has come to stay with us just like other disease like, Cholera, Malaria, Diabetes among others hence, children must be allowed to go back to school and learn for the betterment of the nation.
Mr. Anokye further disclosed that the long stay of children at homes would go a long way to affect their education and the country in terms of development.
Interaction with media yesterday, Mr. Anokye said, “I see no reason why government should continue paying salaries to teachers whilst our children remain at home”.
He was optimistic the presence of children in their various schools would not escalate the spread of the disease as people are speculating.
He, however, expressed worry about how the two major political parties in the country, the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) are playing politics with the deadly coronavirus.
The affable entrepreneur noted that the two major political parties are causing fear and panic among the Ghanaian populace with the pandemic rather than finding a lasting solution to the outbreak.
Mr. Anokye indicated that the way and manner the NDC and NPP are handling the virus would go a long to affect the nation’s development.
“I always feel very embarrassed when I hear members of both the NDC and the NPP condemning each other over the deadly Coronavirus” Mr. Anokye stated.
The KOANS Estates CEO hinted that the two major political parties in the country continues to condemn each other over the outbreak as way of luring the Ghanaian masses for votes come December 7.
“For what we are hearing or seeing I can say that the virus is not real because the figures that we are having are not standard” he stated.
According to outspoken entrepreneur, the only way we can escaped from the outbreak as a nation is to adhere to directives by authorities.
