Thousands of residents of the South Ketu district in the Volta region, are in the streets of Aflao this Friday to demand the reopening of the Togo-Ghana border.
Already protestors are in the streets of the border town this Friday, August 27, 2021, brandishing placards with inscriptions such as: “Mr Presitent open the border we are suffering” Faure & Nana open the border and regulate “, etc.
“All we ask the government is to open our borders so that our lives return to normal,” said earlier Bright Dzili, spokesperson for the demonstrators.
Ghana’s borders were closed in March 2020 at the start of the notorious infectious disease, coronavirus.
Residents of the southern district of Ketu who are known for cross-border business activities between the two countries complain that the border closure is severely affecting their livelihoods.
“We must all understand that the covid has come to stay, and we cannot continue to manage it as if it were a visitor who has come and who will leave tomorrow,” hammered one of the organizers of the protest.
