And for her, she believes the situation can be resolved if government involved traditional rulers in the fight against the pandemic.
According to Lydia Forson in a tweet, people obey directives from traditional rulers siting how they adhered strictly to the ban on noise making among others.
Her post read;
From the comments I believe that traditional rulers should be educated and empowered even more to help reach their people on #COVID2019
There’s a respect and trust people give to traditional rulers that politicians don’t get. We’ve all witnessed the numerous occasions where chiefs have imposed a ban on noise making or curfew and people who don’t even believe in these customs comply.
It’s interesting that we’ve not used them more.
When I say reach people in a language they understand, I don’t always mean literally.
If they’re willing to stay home because a chief is dead, they can because they’ve been told not to.
Just my thoughts.
