Lifted lockdown: President should come again - Edward Kwame Nkrumah.

Apr 20, 2020

The CEO of CompuNet Schools and Director of Help The Needy Foundation, Mr Edward Kwame Nkrumah has expressed misgivings about the just lifted partial lockdown by the President.

In an interview with Mr Edward Kwame Nkrumah by Dailywatchgh, he said he cannot understand why the president lifted the partial lockdown, stressing that there has been an astronomical increase in the number of covid-19 cases compared to the time he imposed the partial lockdown where it was nowhere near  100 cases.

He argued that this is the time the lockdown should be extended  to other areas which were not part of  the lockdown directive as the community spread is becoming more prevalent, adding that he cannot understand why external borders are closed and internal travelling is allowed.

He was also of the view that the President has not been fair to other businesses which are still not allowed to operate, such as Pubs and recreational centres.

"Can someone convince me that a VIP bus which takes 35 passengers will take 25 and still charge the same amount or can Antrak Air which carries  about 40 passengers now carry 20 and still charge the same amount?" he quizzed.

Mr Edward Kwame Nkrumah made the assertion that if social distancing could be observed at the President's meet the press, meet the clergy, meet the market women, meet drivers' union etc.  where we recorded  not less than 50 attendees, why can't churches and schools with fewer numbers be allowed to operate and observe social distancing.

"You close down schools, yet you say their parents should go to work , who take care of the children at home?" he fumed.

Recently, Mr Edward Kwame Nkrumah, the Director of Help The Needy Foundation in collaboration with O2-Pub gave food to over 400 people in and around Atonsu, Gyinyaase and Asafo fittingshop area in the midst of the covid-19 partial lockdown, to calm the pressure on individuals who were finding it difficult to cope with the adverse of the lockdown.

He pleaded with the government that it is not fair and something should be done about it immediately so that other businesses can also  operate freely without fear or panic.
