Information Minister, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah has cautioned Ghanaians of a possible total lockdown and curfew if they do not adhere strictly to safety protocol measures put in place by the World Health Organisation.
According to him, if people do not do as they are told, the government would have no other option than to introduce a more stricter measure to control people.
Speaking in an interview on Peace FM, he said if government witnessed an increase in the COVID-19 cases, a total lockdown, and a curfew would be enforced.
"If people keep being stubborn, and there is a spike, a lockdown and a curfew will be imposed," he said.
Oppong Nkrumah's warning comes on the back of large numbers of people trooping to town and markets a day after President Akufo-Addo lifted the partial lockdown that was imposed on certain parts of the country.
A report filed by Peace FM detailed how most of the people who trooped the markets immediately after the lockdown was lifted without observing the social distancing rule nor wearing masks as directed by the President.
In other news, Professor Agyeman Badu Akosa has expressed his disappointment in President Akufo-Addo’s decision to lift the lockdown in parts of the country.
According to the former Director-General of Ghana Health Service, the president should have instead, extended the lockdown to all parts of the country.
He opined in a discussion on Citi TV Monday, April 20, 2020, that he and his colleagues in the health sector expected the president to at least extend the lockdown to the end of April to protect the lives of Ghanaians.
