Political Analyst and lecturer at the University of Ghana, Professor Ransford Yaw Gyampo is advocating for a 3-day total lockdown of the country as the nation combats the deadly COVID-19 pandemic.

This call from the Professor comes in response to various reports that a section of the populace is refusing to comply with the Presidential directive ordering a partial lockdown in some parts of the country.

According to Professor Gyampo, this behaviour exhibited by some Ghanaians is a clear indication that people do not understand the gravity of the coronavirus pandemic which has necessitated a lockdown.

Given this, the lecturer is calling on the government to be bold enough and implement a more drastic measure to deal with the situation. He, therefore, suggested a 3-day total lockdown of the nation. He believes that by the end of the third day, Ghanaians will appreciate the importance of the whole exercise and then comply with the directives.

Speaking on Accra-based Neat FM on Tuesday, March 31, 2020, Professor Ransford Yaw Gyampo opined that “we need perhaps a more drastic measure. Personally, I think because some people are not appreciating the partial lockdown, hence flouting the directives. The government must be bold and order for a nationwide 3-day total lockdown in the meantime. Better still, places undergoing the partial lockdown must go to a total lockdown continuously for three days.”

He continued to add that “with this when those flouting the directive are kept inside for 3-days with their movements restricted when the partial lockdown is implemented, people will appreciate it and comply.”
