The Member of Parliament for North Tongu, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwah,is pleading with government to halt the temporary closure of Ghana’s borders to allow Ghanaians who are stranded to come back to the country.
He is beseeching the president to relax the close of Ghana’s borders to enable Ghanaians who are currently stuck outside the country to return home.
“Receiving many calls from Ghanaians who have been left stranded in other countries following the closure of our borders as part of measures to limit the importation of COVID-19,” Mr. Ablakwah wrote on Facebook.
“I appeal to President Akufo-Addo to grant our fellow citizens a narrow window of return and be quarantined.”
Some Ghanaian citizens who travelled outside the shores of Ghana have not been able to return home since the borders were closed.
The President, Nana Akufo-Addo has extended the closure of the country’s borders by a month.
He said the extension is to enable the country to contain the coronavirus pandemic which is wreaking havoc across the world.
