Take personal safety seriously – NCCE boss urges students
The Metropolitan Director of the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE), Mr Isaac Kwame Antwi, has noted with concern the fact that some students in the Tema metropolis have refused to wear their face and nose masks.
He said the recklessness on the part of these students who walked through the streets of the metropolis had become alarming and a threat to the safety of the public and themselves.
Speaking in an interview with The Spectator, Mr Antwi noted that aside usually walking closely in groups after school without observing the protocol of social distancing, they speak directly into the faces of their colleagues.
He said it was about time school authorities in the Tema metropolis took the matter seriously to educate their students on the dangers of their actions and possibly apply punitive measures against such students to make them behave responsibly.
The NCCE Director emphasised that wearing of masks and observing social distancing were to ensure the safety of all persons but not for the fun of it, and advised students to take their safety seriously as the coronavirus pandemic was no respecter of persons or age.
He called on parents and guardians to ensure that their children and wards always put on their masks and observe all COVID-19 protocols.
