Some Ghanaians on social media have asked President Akufo-Addo to call the residents of Chorkor to order by injecting some sense into their head before the situation gets out of hand.

Social media went agog after Ghanaweb.com reported how residents of Chorkor a suburb of Accra ignored the President’s lockdown directives, to chill at the beach on Easter Sunday, April 12, 2020.

Hundreds of people who reside at the popular coastal area were out in their numbers in the afternoon to cool it off by swimming in the sea, unperturbed by the growing cases of Coronavirus in Ghana.

While the elderly fisher folks were busy mending their nets, a number of people; children and the youth mostly, were busy making merry and celebrating to mark the Easter festivities.

Hours after GhanaWeb broke the news, personnel from the military stormed the community beach in their numbers and sacked the people who were breaking the law.

However, Ghanaians who took to social media to express their disgust believe President Akufo-Addo’s government must do more to ensure that people comply to the lockdown directives.

Whiles others called for punitive measures to be meted out to those who go contrary to the rules, another school of thought opined that there must be more education in different languages to ensure that everyone is educated and informed about the situation.
