“I won’t allow my children to go back to school” – Sam George


Member of Parliament(MP) for Ningo Prapram Sam Nettey George has taken a decision to restrict his wards from going back to school even though the Government has called for schools to be reopened after the closure due to the pandemic.

Per the President’s announcement in his address, schools have been reopened after thorough consultations with medical experts and other stakeholders.

Various schools have had disinfection done and a provided with the needed Protective equipment to safeguard schoolchildren against the spread of the virus in the wake of the new variant.

But Sam George has blatantly announced the directive he will give to kids, that is, his kids are to stay home. This decision was after he had consulted Señior Medical Officers and his wife of how safe are his kids in schools.

He said it is better his children miss their grades rather than lose their lives to the deadly COVID-19 pandemic.

The lawmaker said in a post on Facebook that “After deep reflection and consultation with Senior Medical professionals, my wife and I have decided that our children would NOT be going to school on Monday or anytime soon. As said earlier, better a missed grade than a grave”.
