President Nana Addo has extended the closure of Ghana’s borders by another two weeks. The extension takes effect from midnight April 5, 2020. President Akufo-Addo directed the closure of all borders in Ghana — land, sea and air — to human traffic for two weeks, with effect from midnight Sunday, March 22, 2020. The closure, however, did not affect goods, supplies and cargo.
The Minister for Information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah in a Tweet on Saturday, April 4, 2020, said;
“President @NAkufoAddo has by a new executive instrument, EI 66, extended the closure of Ghana’s borders by another two weeks effective midnight tomorrow April 5.”
“Mr President believes that these tough decisions are necessary to protect the lives of Ghanaians despite the inconvenience it causes to many,” he added.
