‘Let's not stampede President Akufo-Addo to lift restrictions’- Assemblyman cautions

President  Akufo-Addo President Akufo-Addo

Mr Christopher Kudzo Galenkui, Assemblyman for Wumenu Electoral Area in the Adaklu District has cautioned the citizenry against 'stampeding' President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to lift restrictions meant to contain COVID-19 in the country.

"If we stampede the President and he lifts the ban now, there will be
calamity in the country," Mr Galenkui said in an interview with Ghana
News Agency.

He said there was no need to rush in lifting the restrictions, when
COVID-19 positive cases were on the increase.

Mr Galenkui said what the country needed now was God's divine intervention
and observance of all safety protocols.

Reverend Samuel Amegboe, Awudome Tsito Area Head of Assemblies of God
Church also said the country's borders should remain closed to avoid the
the influx of people from neighbouring countries some of whom could be
potential carriers of the virus.

He, however, said apart from re-opening of schools, the ban on other social
gatherings should be lifted.
