Ghanaians have expressed shock at President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s directive for beaches, pubs and night clubs to remain closed as part of measures to curb the spread of COVID-19 in the country.

The President made this announcement during his 20th address to the nation on measures taken by the government to fight the virus.

“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,” President Akufo-Addo stated.

This statement by the President came as a surprise to a lot of Ghanaians and some even wondered who briefs the President, because a lot of beaches, pubs and night clubs are operating despite the directive.

Some Ghanaians also admitted that they have been going to some of the pubs to have a good time with friends and family.

Here are some of the reactions from Ghanaians:
