Ghanaian songstress, Efe Gyapong has sent a word of encouragement to people who are experiencing hardship following the lockdown announced in some four cities in the country.
In a Facebook post Friday, the musician said the difficult times brought on by the government’s decision are being experienced by a majority of Ghanaians.
“I really sympathise with everyone going through Hard times because of the COVID-19,” Efe Gyapong wrote, adding: “Nowhere cool chale.”
President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo announced two weeks lockdown in Accra, Kumasi, Kasoa and Tema following the rapid spread of the coronavirus there.
The President later announced an additional one-week to enable health workers bring the situation under control.
But the decision has plunged a majority of residents in the four cities into hardship and poverty leaving them to depend on the benevolence of the government.
The government in collaboration with church groups have been moving from one location to the other giving out food items to residents.
But the hardship brought on by the lockdown directive is being felt by all, Efe Gyapong wrote.
“The fact that some of us aren’t speaking doesn’t mean we [are] sitting in our rich homes eating chicken every day,” she wrote, adding: “We taking things day by day.”
