FAKE NEWS: Schools not resuming on April 14
The Education Ministry has not released any statement about schools resuming

GhanaWeb has sighted statement making rounds on social media seeking to suggest the Minister of Education, Matthew Opoku Prempeh has given a directive for students across the country to go back to school.

“The Minister of Education, Hon. Matthew Opoku Prempeh in a press release last night declared April 14 as the day to move our entire education sector to normalcy.

Ghana Health Service confirmed the recovery of some forty-nine (49) coronavirus patients as at the end of March 2020. Even though the information ministry warned there could be more cases, NAPO stressed that the pandemic will be over by the second week of April.

All students across the nation from basic, to the second cycle through to the tertiary will soon go back to school and resume academic work like China is doing now,” the statements reads.

The statement sources peaceonline, citifmonline and in some cases www.ghanaweb.com.

Checks by GhanaWeb, however, indicate that the news is *FAKE* and must be disregarded as the Education Ministry has not put out any such statement.

GhanaWeb will also like to detach itself from any such news indicating this portal as the source.
