“Under the initiative of the Military High Command, and the Ministry of Education, all military facilities, barracks, basic and senior high schools, methodist churches and tertiary educational institutions in Volta Region and Oti Region will benefit from the exercise,” Volta Regional Minister, Archibald Letsa, said.
The minister said this Tuesday when he launched the exercise at the Volta Regional Security Coordinating Council in Ho.
A total of fifty-five military facilities including the Volta Barrack in Ho, Naval Training Command in Sogakope, Akoefe Training Camp, Operation Ahodwo camps, (Nkonya/Alavanyo), Operation Gongon in Kete Karachi, Operation Safe camp in Hohoe, Operation Sitdown Look Camp in Aflao, MOC in Kpando Torkor and MOC in Dambai.
Twenty tertiary institutions in the two regions would also disinfected and fumigated.
The Regional minister said the exercise will be carried out in all offices and public places, as well as police installations across the region.
It follows the directive by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo to schools to resume academic exercise for final year students of the various basic and senior high schools as part of the easing of covid-19 restrictions announced last Sunday.
The disinfection exercise forms part of efforts by the government to curb the spread of the new coronavirus disease (Covid-19).
Mr Letsa charged all the municipal and district chief executives to engage with the respective directors of education to monitor the exercise in schools under their jurisdictions.
