Temporarily open borders for us to return home - Sarkodie begs Akufo-Addo

After being stuck in the US for weeks, rapper Sarkodie is pleading with President Akufo-Addo to temporarily open the country’s borders for him to return home.

The rapper is beseeching the president to relax the close of Ghana’s borders to enable Ghanaians who are currently stuck outside the country to return home.

Following the outbreak of the Coronavirus pandemic and the subsequent confirmation of cases in Ghana, President Akufo-Addo ordered the closure of the country’s borders.

The directive was to help curb the importation of the virus into the country. The order, however, exempted cargo-carrying essential items or goods.

Sarkodie made the request for the opening of the borders following the president’s announcement Sunday night lifting the ban on movements in Greater Accra, Tema, and Greater Kumasi.

“Mr president @NAkufoAddo you’ve done so well with how you handling this pandemic , we appreciate your effort ???????? But please can we open the boarders for at least a day or two in between time for citizens stuck outside to get back pls ????????,” the rapper said in a tweet.

Apart from Sarkodie, rappers Pappy Kojo, D-Black, and Agbeshie have all made similar requests for them to return home.
