According to Mr. Boakye, the closure of the schools during the covid era has caused a lot of harm to the private schools which the government needs to assist them
He said since school was closed down, most of their infrastructures have broken down, they have no food to feed the students, they don’t have funds to finance the various schools and many other things which the assistance of the government is needed.
Finally Mr. Boakye appealed to the government to assist them to pay their teachers since they were not able to pay them during the covid era.
