Minister for Information Kojo Oppong Nkrumah says the government is doing an assessment over when to reopen Ghana's land and sea borders.
There have been calls by several Ghanaians for the government to reopen the land and sea borders.
Mr Oppong Nkrumah indicated that an assessment is ongoing to find out if it will be possible to make COVID-19 screening available across all the borders.
According to him, the outcome of the assessment would determine how soon President Akufo-Addo will allow the reopening of Ghana’s land borders.
He noted that though some decisions taken by the government may be inconvenient, they have had to make them in the interest of Ghanaians.
Ghana’s air, sea, and land borders were closed on Sunday, March 22, 2020, following an order by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo as part of efforts to stop the spread of COVID-19 in the country.
He subsequently reopened the air borders on Tuesday, September 1, 2020, leaving the country’s land and sea borders closed.
