Ghana’s topmost rapper, Sarkodie is pleading with President Akufo-Addo to order a brief opening of the country’s borders to allow human traffic for at least one day.
The multiple award-winning artiste made the call on his social media timelines on Monday April 20, following the lifting of the partial lockdown on the Ghana’s covid-19 epicenters.
Ghana announced an indefinite closure of borders on March 22 as part of measures to halt the spread of the bug.
Whilst easing restrictions on human movement during his 7th address on the COVID-19 crisis on Sunday April 19, President Akufo-Addo also extended the initial border closure until further notice.
But Sarkodie who has been stuck in the United States since the announcement of the border restrictions said, a brief opening of the country’s airports would allow Ghanaians who are stranded overseas to return home to their families after the long wait.
“Please can we open the boarders for at least a day or two in between time for citizens stuck outside to get back pls,” Sarkodie tweeted.
The celebrated rapper applauded the president for his handling of the pandemic since the first cases were confirmed in Ghana.
“Mr president @NAkufoAddo you’ve done so well with how you handling this pandemic, we appreciate your effort,” he added.
Sarkodie, D-Black, and Pappy Kojo are among a number of Ghanaian entertainers who couldn’t make it back home before the closure of borders.
