Ofoase Ayirebi Member of Parliament and the President’s representative at the Ministry of Information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah has said Akufo-Addo might impose another COVID-19 lockdown to slow the spread of the virus.
Kojo Oppong Nkrumah speaking at a Press Briefing on Monday, January 25, 2021, monitored by Educationweb.com.gh said the level of public adherence to coronavirus safety protocols would contribute to the COVID-19 lockdown.
The government spokesman, however, said the President Nana Akufo-Addo’s decision to impose a second partial COVID-19 lockdown will not be based on the surge in the country’s locally transmitted coronavirus cases.
“it had nothing to do with the number of cases at the time, Because if it was about the number of cases then, of course, there will be a strong argument to make that when the cases go up then we have to lock down some more.”
The Information Minister-designate advised the good people of Ghana to strictly adhere and comply with the necessary coronavirus preventive etiquette as the novel virus continues to rise in the country.
