The Member of Parliament has been in the news of late for her continuous attempt to influence the government and Parliament to listen to the cries of traders and travellers around and in border towns in the district and constituency.
Earlier today, honourable Dorcas Afo-Toffey met with security authorities or personnel in Elubo, a border town in the Jomoro constituency and presented her research findings concerning certain effects that the closure of the land borders are having on the lives of people living around these areas.
She revealed that, even though the land borders are closed but still people or travellers still use other illegal or unapproved paths and roads to get into the country or leave the country and the authorities on the border confirmed to the above claim.
But the border's authorities made it clear to her that they are following the directives of the President and for that matter they cannot do anything about it.
The Member of Parliament made all these known to the public by posting pictures and the summary of the occasion on her Facebook platform.
She concluded by pleading with the President of the country to reconsider the reopening of the land borders.
