Ghanaian actress and video vixen Efia Odo has stated in a tweet that she does not agree with the government’s decision to lift the ban on restrictions especially when Ghana has recorded over 1000 Coronavirus cases.
According to Efia Odo, something doesn’t seem right with the new directive by the president and feels lifting of the lockdown was politically motivated.
“Ban being lifted after 1000+ cases reported. Something smells fishy or shall I say there’s a political agenda aroma around this lift,” she wrote on Twitter on April 19, 2020.

Her tweet follows the government’s decision to lift the 21-day lockdown imposed when the country had only recorded about 32 cases.
In the president’s speech yesterday, he said:
“Fellow Ghanaians, in view of our ability to undertake aggressive contact tracing of infected persons, the enhancement of our capacity to test, the expansion in the numbers of our treatment and isolation centres, our better understanding of the dynamism of the virus, the ramping up of our domestic capacity to produce our own personal protective equipment, sanitisers and medicines, the modest successes chalked at containing the spread of the virus in Accra and Kumasi, and the severe impact on the poor and vulnerable, I have taken the decision to lift the three (3) week old restriction on movements in the Greater Accra Metropolitan Area and Kasoa, and the Greater Kumasi Metropolitan Area and its contiguous districts, with effect from 1 am on Monday, 20th April. In effect, tomorrow will see the partial lockdown in Accra and Kumasi being lifted”.
