President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is expected to address the country today May 31, 2020, on new measures rolled out to contain the spread of the novel coronavirus.
Ghanaians are anxious to see if the President will lift the ban on public gatherings after it was extended by some two weeks during the last address but expires tonight.
Many are anticipating especially churches that the restriction on public gatherings will be lifted in order to allow them to converge and worship as well as borders of the country reopen in order to allow stranded Ghanaians oustide to return home.
Educational Institutions as well as churches have since presented a roadmap to the government as to how they will adhere to health protocols if the restrictions are eased but it is unclear if the government will agree to these proposals.
Senior Minister, Yaw Osafo-Maafo, had earlier revealed that final talks on how Ghana should lift coronavirus restrictions will round off on Friday, May 29, 2020.
The meeting according to him, the government will pool the views of key stakeholders in a bid to agree on the best way to ease the restrictions and bring economic and social life to normalcy.
“Almost all the identified groups who matter in this light have been consulted,” he said Tuesday, May 26, 2020, during a press briefing held at the behest of the Information Ministry to give updates on the coronavirus situation in the country and other related pressing matters.
If the country must be going on economically, the country must be socially cohesive and, therefore, we have to put all the various measures in place to ensure that we go about our normal work very well and also taking into consideration the various measures to ensure control over the virus,” Mr. Osafo-Maafo stated.
