Haruna Iddrisu wants government to reopen Ghana’s land borders

Haruna Iddrisu questions the continuous closure of land borders and said there is no justification for the government’s stance.

The minority Leader said “We call on President Akufo-Addo supported by his Minister for Health and Minister for Interior to take urgent practical steps for reopening of Ghana’s Land borders, to allow for free flow of persons and goods.”

The Tamale South MP further argued, “Across ECOWAS and the rest of the world post COVID, though we are not out of the wounds yet. We want to see a return to normalcy with the movement of goods and service to our borders.”

“Therefore, whatever proactive measures that need to be taken, there can be no justification for the continued closure of Ghana’s land borders.”

The land borders in Ghana have been closed since March 2020 when the country encountered its early cases of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.

After two years, the hardship in communities around the borders are now unbearable as residents are unable to engage in usual cross-border trading activities.
