All is set for today, Thursday, September 2, 2021 demonstration by the people of Jomoro in the Western Region against the closure of the land borders in Ghana due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Member of Parliament for Jomoro Dorcas Affo Toffey is scheduled to lead her constituents in this morning’s demonstration to call on the Ghanaian government to open its land border with Cote d’lvoire which has been more than a year, resulting in economic hardship being faced by her constituents around the Elubo border

On Friday, August 27, the MP for Ketu South Constituency in the Volta Region, Abla Dzifa Gomashie, led her constituents and other well-meaning Ghanaians to stage a similar demonstration against the closure of their borders.

Dubbed ‘Open Our Land Borders Now!’, the demonstration is scheduled to begin from Eagle Junction to Elubo Border at 7am today.

The aim of these demonstrations is to put pressure on the government to re-open the land borders which were closed in March, 2020 as a result of the pandemic.
