Some police officers refuses to wear mask-GMA


According to the Ashanti Regional Chairman of the GMA, Dr Paa Kwasi Baidoo, Police officers who are supposed to enforce the law on mask-wearing among Ghanaians are not wearing it themselves.

“I went to a police station and personnel there were not wearing masks. These are people who are supposed to enforce the law,” he told Francis Abban on the Morning Starr Monday.

It comes in the wake of President Akufo-Addo’s latest appeal to Ghanaians to continue abiding by safety protocols as the world continues to battle the virus.

“It is important to stress that our borders, by land and sea, will remain closed to human traffic until further notice. Beaches, pubs, cinemas and nightclubs remain closed until further notice. All other institutions that have been cleared to function are to continue to do so in strict adherence to the COVID-19 protocols.

“So, my fellow Ghanaians, I make this plea to all of you to ensure compliance with the enhanced hygiene and mask-wearing protocols that have become part of our daily routines. This will help us in the fight against the virus”.

The President also assured Ghanaians government is working the newly developed COVID-19 vaccine.
