Ghanaian filmmaker, Peter Sedufia has said he is dumbfounded about President Akufo-Addo’s decision to lift the partial lockdown in some parts of the country.
In a post sighted by Zionfelix.net, he labelled the President’s seventh address to Nation as the most ambiguous so far after the outbreak of Coronavirus.
The ‘Keteke’ movie director questioned why people are asked to stay at home when the partial lockdown has been lifted.
He bemoaned many people who make a living from public gatherings have still been rendered jobless since the ban on public gatherings remains unchanged.
He was afraid the Coronavirus maybe be spread to other parts of the country which are yet to record any case.

Peter Sedufia was uncertain whether the decision was politically motivated or not.
The movie producer emphasized that the lives of Ghanaians matter most than the political achievements that both NPP and NDC are drawing a bead on.
“DEAR MR. PRESIDENT AKUFO ADDO,
I’m sorry, this has been the most ambiguous address so far. “Lockdown is lifted, but, still stay at home”. I’m confused. So really, what is the lift on the lockdown intended to achieve when public gatherings are still restricted? Lots of people also make their living from public gatherings (i.e. event organisers, churches, schools, cimemas and the likes). The lockdown rendered them jobless, the lift is still rendering them jobless. So I ask, WHO DOES THE LOCKDOWN LIFT BENEFIT?
“Or, we just feel it’s okay now for people carrying the virus to spread it amongst their small groups of 25 people. We can now even comfortably export the virus to the remaining 6 regions that don’t have it yet. I hope this lockdown lift is not an act of political expediency, where the NIA and EC would have a leeway to operate. I know that has been the biggest issue – “How does the EC compile a new voter’s register if the lockdown continues?”. I hope this is not an answer to that big question…Ghanaian Lives Matter than NPP or NDC winning political power!” Peter Sedufia wrote on Facebook.
