Ghana’s president, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo has reacted to calls by Civil Society groups and other individuals to lock down the country over the risen number of coronavirus cases.
In a video obtained by Zionfelix.net, President Akufo Addo said the government is thinking about measures that will be in the best interest for all.
“People in Ghana are now talking about a lockdown. Majority of people who will be affected by decisions of that nature are the working people of our country – the ordinary ones who will be affected, and it is important for us to take into account the circumstances and conditions.
“When we lock down Accra, what are the consequences? A responsible government is required to look at all the implications before decisions are made. And that is the exercise we are currently engaged in, and I am hoping that much sooner than later we will come to an agreement on what those measures are and the Ghanaian people will be informed,” he stated during a meeting with the leadership of Trade Union Congress (TUC).
Currently, Ghana has recorded 132 cases of coronavirus.
Many people are calling for a lockdown while others are voicing against such a decision.
