Our Manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
The Minister of Local Government and Rural Development, Hajia Alima Mahama, earlier confirmed that some markets in the Greater Accra Region would be closed from Monday, March 23, 2020.
This action according to her, was to allow for fumigation in fighting the coronavirus outbreak in the country.
In the Greater Accra Region, the markets have been categorised into six zones from Accra to Ada, the end of the region.
YEN.com.gh visited the Madina markets and it was a shadow of its normal self when personnel arrived to fumigate the place.

Meanwhile, a kind gentleman who appears to be in his thirties by name Efo Governor dedicated his entire day and life at a market place to warn ignorant Ghanaians against fumigation exercise.
According to Efo Governor, he made his way to the marketplace as early as five in the morning to play his part in the fight against COVID-19 as a responsible citizen.
Efo Governor mentioned in an interview with YEN.com.gh that nobody had assigned him to do the rather important duty, but he chose to do so in an attempt to save the lives of many Ghanaians even if his own is at risk.
