A mother who appeared to have been tired of being worried by her son decided to give him a task of counting a bowl of rice so she can have time to rest amid the lockdown exercise.
The video was sighted by YEN.com.gh on the official Instagram handle of Celebritiesbuzzgh and it is not clear the exact location where it was recorded.
In the video, the mother carefully instructed the young innocent boy to use the counting skills he was taught in class to execute the task for her whilst she goes to the room and "lies down" waiting for him.
The young boy who clearly did not actually understand what his mother was trying to do, was fully poised and passionate to count the rice for the mother, as though it is for some just cause.
Following the closure of schools and other social gatherings around the world to contain the spread of the novel coronavirus, many parents have had to put up with the disturbances from their wards.
In Ghana, the president announced that from March 16, 2020, all public gatherings are suspended whilst a lockdown exercise was added by the same, effective, March 30, 2020.
Currently, the country has confirmed 636 cases of COVID-19 with eight deaths and 17 full recoveries.
Meanwhile, a 56-year-old Ghanaian cobbler called Opani Sarfo who could not endure the lockdown exercise because of extreme hunger broke down in tears on camera after receiving a gift of GHC1,000.
The father of five children was blessed with the gift by individuals in Virginia, USA, under the auspices of the Crime Check Foundation under the leadership of Ibrahim Oppong Kwarteng.
Opani Sarfo was spotted in his cobbler shop which was in violation of the lockdown exercise put in place by President Nana Akufo-Addo to contain the spread of COVID-19.
