2. Ghana: Schools not reopening in September — Education Ministry
The Ministry of Education says there are no immediate plans to reopen schools from next month for full academic activities. Consequently, it has called on the public to ignore reports to that effect.
Speaking at the National Inspectorate Board (NIB) School Establishment and Inspection Policy (SEaIP) Validation Workshop, Mr. Benjamin Gyasi said that the report was a rumor and not the position of the ministry, adding, “When we get to the bridge we will cross it but we are not there yet. Once we get there, there will be a presidential directive after which the ministry will make the arrangements. But it is not true that we are going to school in September 2020.”

5. Juventus appoint Andrea Pirlo to replace Maurizio Sarri
Juventus have appointed Andrea Pirlo as the manager to replace the sacked Maurizio Sarri, a week after hiring the former midfielder as Under-23 boss. The Italian giants sacked Sarri after just one season despite winning Serie A following the club’s Champions League last-16 defeat by Lyon on Friday.
Pirlo, 41, has signed a two-year deal until June 2022. The former Italy midfielder was only named the club’s Under-23 manager on July 30. Juventus said the decision to promote him is “based on the belief that Pirlo has what it takes to lead from his debut on the bench, an expert and talented squad to pursue new success.”
