Member of Parliament for Jomoro Toffey Dorcas has called on government to consider re-opening of the countries land boarders especially the one at her constituency.

She made a statement on the floor of Parliament urging President Nana Akufo-Addo through Parliament to re-open the boarder at her constituency since the livelihood of her people are in critical condition, “especially women and children”.

In an interview, she further pointed out that those who do business at the Jomoro boarder amount to four thousand people per month, and if Kotoka International Airport could be open for operation for people of about two million without having much difficulties, the land boarder in her constituency and other places in Ghana should be opened with the enforcement of the COVID-19 protocols.

The MP said they share boarder with Ivory Coast and laments the inability of people to go about their normal business as a result of the closure of the boarder.
