Assin Central Member of Parliament (MP), Kennedy Agyapong has charged the President, Nana Akufo-Addo to extend the partial lockdown in Greater Accra and parts of Kumasi for one more week.
The two regions have been on a partial lockdown for three weeks with only providers of essential services being allowed to go to work.
The initial order for a lockdown was for two weeks but was extended by the President for one more week.
Ken Agyapong said looking at the spread of the disease; he believes the time is up for the President to extend the lockdown.
“Although the President has done well with the containment of the disease, I think he should extend the lockdown for one more week, so we go for a full one month…,” he said while speaking on Net 2
He further iterated, he was of the conviction that the disease wouldn’t have spread into the country if the President had closed the borders a week earlier.
The controversial Legislator called on NADMO and other state agencies to stop sharing food to the vulnerable in society if they are not willing to observe social distancing being advocated by the President.
He further asked Ghanaians to take the disease seriously and abide by all rules spelt out by the government.
