The minister of information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah has stated that the government is working towards easing COVID-19 restrictions at the country’s land borders. This follows calls by the minority in parliament on the issue.
The land b0arders were closed by the government in 2020 following the COVID19 outbreak. This move was to prevent the spread of the coronavirus in the Ghana, the government stated. The land borders have remained closed which is seen to affect business activities and passengers who use the boarders for travels.
Kojo Oppong Nkrumah in a tweet on Thursday disclosed that the government “has been engaged in meetings in preparation to announce easing of restrictions at our borders and tackling escalating fuel prices.”
The government currently seems to be running out of ideas in arresting the weak cedi and the hardships being faced by the ordinary Ghana. Government hopes that the restrictions when eased could help promote economic activities.
Ghanaians are also asking about the the dead silence of the vice president, Dr Mahammud Bawumia over the current economic challenges. Dr Bawumia has lost credibility over his own diagnosis of the Ghanaian economy when he was then in opposition in 2016.
