Livelihoods threatened by continuous closure of land borders


Prof. Naana Jane Opoku Agyemang is of the view it’s disrespectful for government to open Ghana’s borders by air and closed borders by land.

According to her, some families have had to suffer because their source of livelihood has been taken away from them.

The NDC’s running mate who made this known in an interview on Accra-based TV3 noted that the people of Ghana are yearning for change due to such disrespectful decisions taken by the current government.

“We cannot say that for example we are closing our land borders but people can fly in. They feel they are been discriminated against and they are not been respected. When you go to Aflao for instance people there sell at the big market in Lome, people depend on that for their livelihood so all these months what are they doing? It’s a real situation that is creating a lot of problems for people. So when they hear of inclusion they feel excited because they know they are all part of it.”

To her, the people of Ghana and human beings in general do not ask for much but just respect and the sense of inclusion and that is what the NDC is offering Ghanaians in its next term in government.
