Ketu South welcomes easing of COVID-19 restrictions

Some residents of Ketu South Municipality in the Volta region have welcomed President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s easing of COVID19 restrictions in the country.

 



Mr Ernest Banini, a dealer in footwear for farmers said government was on track with the measures and called on the citizenry for support to defeat the virus.

“So far, I’m impressed with measures government has announced since the outbreak of this disease including the recent easing of the restrictions.

“The education sector remained one of my problems and now that he’s asked the final year students to resume school, I believe plans are underway to get the remaining ones back to school.

“As for the borders remaining closed, we need to support government because the intention is to prevent the importation of cases into the country as that’s how the virus initially got here,” he added.

Madam Sitsofe Asinyo, a seamstress said though she was comfortable with some of the new directives, there were other disturbing ones.

“The green light for the Electoral Commission to compile new register is not good enough. You know the restlessness and agitations that come with people having difficulty registering because that’s the only card that will allow them to vote and you can trust that these health protocols will be ignored.”

She added that, “as a border community, our lives depend on crossing to Togo because for me, I usually buy my materials from Lome which is close but with the closure, I have to travel all the way to Accra and this means extra cost, time among others.”

Madam Asinyo therefore appealed to government to consider easing the restrictions on the country’s borders too.

Ms Joan Afiyo, a middle-aged trader at the Aflao border also said with safety measures at the borders, they could be opened to promote trade and businesses.

Another trader said although the hygiene protocols were good, they could not prevent anyone from contracting the virus and that it was the grace of God on the country.
