The people have began a demonstration against the government for the several months of closure of the Aflao border. The border has remained closed since March of 2020 as a security measure against the importation of the much dreaded covid-19 pandemic into the country.
Apart from the closer of the land borders, the government also closed down airports at the same time for that same reason. But currently, the airports have been reopened for business and running for several months, whilst the land borders have since remained closed. But the people of Aflao have expressed their unhappiness about the whole situation.
Speaking today on Metro TV's Good Morning Ghana hosted by Randy Abbey, the national Communications Officer for the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Samuel Gyamfi expressed his support for the demonstrators at Aflao in the Volta Region. According to Sammy Gyamfi, the government should reopen the border and put in place relevant measures to check the importation of covid-19.
He warned that if the government does not act fast, there is likely be a positive defiance by the people of Ketu South as it happened in some advanced countries.
