People In Border Towns Are Suffering - Dzifa Gomashie to Government
The Member of Parliament for Ketu South in the Volta Region Abla Dzifa Gomashie has called on government to to put measures in place to alleviate the suffering of people living in the border towns. Hundreds of residents in the Ketu South Municipality are currently on streets in the municipality and as they demand the opening of the
Aflao Border. The country’s land borders too have been closed since the outbreak of the Covid pandemic in the 2020. The MP said in March when the announcement came that the borders too were going to be closed, the airports were closed. We put in protocols and airports are open now. Who is interested in what is happening to
the people living at the border? she quizzed. She went on we need for the state to come and say this is the timeline, from March till 2023 the borders are going to remain closed, but within that time this is what we are putting in place because it’s Covid because it terrorists,’ whatever the reason may be, communicate something
to us. And then the state must find a way to alleviate the suffering of the people. I’ve been told that our president is a listening president and a listening government. I’m hoping this time around after the statement, questions and demonstration, something will be said, she added.
