The Aflao district is a town in Ketu South District in the Volta Region on Ghana's border with Togo. Aflao is the twenty-eighth most populous settlement in Ghana, in terms of population, with a population of 96,550 people. In the 18th century, Aflao served as one of the major markets for the slave trade.
The country benefiting a lot through from this migration town years back can be undescribable. Meanwhile, after the pandemic strike of Coronavirus , the border was assigned to be closed. However , to implement safety protocols. This happened in the 2019. Till date, the border hasn't received any assurance of opening it's gates. Drivers of the Aflao district rose in the year ,2021 but to no avail.
Currently, they are pleading with government, nevertheless,it has been 2years of Aflao to Togo and other borders closure. This passage is their means of survival . Hence , government should a look at the drastic living they go through. They are present to work on a daily basis but spent hours doing absolutely nothing.
Aflao Drivers pleads to government.
