Celebrated television personality, Oheneyere Gifty Anti has cried to the President of Ghana, Nana Akufo-Addo to stop pampering Ghanaian’s and enforce a total lockdown as the deadly coronavirus continue to spread.
According to her, a total lockdown in the country will prevent further spread of the COVID-19 which has infected 566 and claimed 8 lives with only 4 recoveries in Ghana.
Gifty Anti recently tested negative for COVID-19, as she was among the people tested in mandatory quarantine after entering the country from coronavirus-hit countries.
In a Facebook post, the ace TV broadcaster pleaded with the President to enforce a total lockdown and stop pampering Ghanaian’t without taking into consideration how each and every one will survive such initiative.
She wrote: “Dear People of God, I think at this rate, I am compelled to join those calling for total lockdown. What? What is wrong with us? My people, when I got to the UK on 10th March 2020, there were 16 deaths. As of the time I was leaving on 22nd March 2020, the total number of deaths was close to 2,000. 2,000 coronavirus-related deaths, in less than 2 weeks. As of today, total deaths, due to coronavirus in the UK is about 10,000. All because they did not listen, just as Ghanaians are not LISTENING!!! Mr President, we can no longer do business as usual. I think you are over pampering us, Mr President. We will be the same people to blame and accuse you if this virus claims more lives. Please, something has to change and immediately too!!!”
The government, as part of measures to prevent further spread of the virus, has extended the restrictions on movement imposed on Kasoa, Greater Accra and Ashanti Regions by an additional week while the ban on social gatherings has also been extended by an additional 2 weeks.
