NUGS Executives Visit Kumasi Academy To Solidarize And Donate Sanitizers

4:43:00 PM

The President of the National Union of Ghana Students, Elisha Oheneba Essumang together with his executives have visited the campus of Kumasi Academy to solidarize with authorities and students and to suggest roadmaps to prevent some of these issues while raising awareness.

Kumasi Academy has been in the news lately following the unfortunate deaths of some students who were stricken down by some illnesses leading to the death of about 11 since March and the hospitalization of about 16. The Noguchi Research Institute have found it to be the H1N1 virus ( Influenza Type A).

It emerged that the four Kumasi Academy students who died over the last few days died of Influenza Type A popularly referred to as Swine Flu.

The NUGS and Ashanti Regional Executives had a closed door meeting with the Headmaster and Assistant Headmasters of the institution to gather first hand briefing of the current situation.

The student leadership later donated 500 pieces of hand sanitizers to the school and promised to top it up to 1000. The sanitizers are to be shared to the students as part of efforts to help ongoing safety efforts.

The President of the Union, His Excellency Elisha Oheneba Essumang, also made it known to the school management and the press that NUGS will do all it can to prevent any of such future occurrences and this would be done by launching a National Health Campaign to educate the masses about such conditions.

He added that NUGS will meet with the Ministry of Education and Health to draw a road map to ensure that most of the Senior High Schools would have well equipped clinics and at least 2 nurses on each campus to attend to the health needs firsthand before referring cases to other hospitals in case of emergencies.

This will not only support students access fine healthcare on campuses but also support government to employ some of the nurses who are home without jobs"* he stressed.

The Executives later joined Asanteman to mourn with them at the Manhyia Palace.
