"Nurses are relieved of their taxes for doing their work, no one is complaining. Teachers are observing directives from president and all eyes on them..."

"...Well I'm very happy to let you know that, no teacher is happy to be at home. For the simple reason that teachers are not lazy people and teachers are parents too. Teachers have their own children in the house instead of being in school. I am also very sorry to tell you that teachers are very much disappointed in you..."

"The Pro is co-founder of Ghana Christian International High School, a Private school. Is his motive based on profit instead of sound health advise?"
