The Minister of Communications, Ursula Owusu-Ekuful a few days ago shut down the MTN office at Dansoman Zodiac for flouting the social distancing rule.

The Minister was reportedly passing in front of the office when she observed that a lot of people were gathered in front of the office with no regard to the fact that there is a virus lurking in the corner.

Infuriated, she ordered for the closure of the office until better precautionary measures are put in place

In a video shared on social media, she could be heard asking persons gathered in front of the office whether they cared more about what they were doing at MTN than their lives.

Some persons have described her tone as too harsh and that she could have still sent the message across without shouting. Others also think that some Ghanaians are too stubborn and that if you are not forceful or strict as far COVID-19 is concerned, they will not listen.

In an interview on Neat FM's 'Me Man Nti' program, Dr Arthur Kennedy, a former NPP presidential hopeful, agrees that the Minister could have educated the people in a more sober tone.

"Her message to the public was a good message but her tone could have been better; she could have lowered her voice a little bit and be more educational; it almost seemed like a headmistress talking down to her students," he opined.
