Our Manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
Ghanaians have been narrating how the partial lockdown that was imposed by the president for three weeks to contain the spread of COVID-19 affected their lives.
The survey was conducted by YEN.com.gh on a special edition of the popular YENKasa around the Kwame Nkrumah Circle.
It would be recalled that the lockdown spanned from Monday, March 30, 2020, to Monday, April 20, 2020, according to the directives of President Nana Addo.
See the video below:
The very first gentleman who was interviewed by the YEN representative mentioned that he sells clothes and found life very difficult during the lockdown.
Another gentleman mentioned that although the lockdown was in full force for the past three weeks, he was able to go about his business in his locality.
The challenge many people described in the interview was quite understandable because the lockdown was strict on individuals whose livelihoods are not directly linked to the food chain, fuel or other essential services.
Many people have been reacting to the interview conducted. Salam Suleman mentions it sounds inappropriate whenever he hears people complaining of being tired of the lockdown.
Tsikata Dziwornu Augustine asked a question that confused many people:
According to Kayla Lydia Sam the lift-off of the lockdown is very dangerous and should be re-enforced.
Meanwhile, Ghana' information minister, Honourable Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, has said that the sharing of free food has stopped as the president has lifted the partial lockdown in the affected areas.
A news report by Peacefmonline indicates that the information minister disclosed this during a radio interview with Kwami Sefa Kayi on PeaceFM's "Kokrokoo".
It may be recalled that the government started the distribution of free meals to an estimated 400,000 Ghanaians with limited means in locked-down areas amidst the COVID-19 outbreak in Ghana.
