Ghana’s President Akufo Addo in his 7th Nation’s Address on COVID-19 yesterday took a stance to end to the partial lockdown coerced in the Greater Accra Region and larger parts of Greater Kumasi in an effort to control the spread of the virus.
This decision by the president has seen a number of people adding their voice to the new directive as the majority of Ghanaians are happy whilst others would have loved for a total lockdown.
On the international front, President Akuffo Addo has been commended by top personalities and prominent among them is popular Nollywood actor Joseph Okechukwu. He believes the decision taken by the President was the best.
According to him, the President took his decision based the data available to him and how the virus is spreading in the country.
