#Coronavirus: Aflao border closure leave students stranded.


The closure of the Togo-Aflao border due to the rapid rise in coronavirus cases has left quiet a number of students stranded at the border.

According to reliable sources, the students were mainly from the Keta Business School and some other Senior High Schools in the Volta Region and resided in Togo.

President Nana Akufo-Addo in a national address on Saturday, March 21, declared the closure of the country’s borders for two weeks as an added measure in Ghana’s bid to control the Coronavirus pandemic.

He, however, stated that the border closure “will not apply to goods, supplies and cargo.”

Some of the stranded students who are final years students of the various schools in the Volta Region speaking to the media at Aflao said, “We’ve been here since morning. We were at school and they broke the news to us that we should go home. So we packed our things and got to the border and we are being told not to cross. We’ve been pleading with them but they don’t want to open it. Now we don’t know what to do. We are hungry and just roaming.”

Another student said, “When we came, the border was closed to everyone. We waited with the mindset that they’ll open the border for us. So as we were waiting, a vehicle came to hit one of the gates and the officers told us to move backwards. Right now we can’t go back to campus because by now, I’m sure our house parents have returned back to their houses. So there’ll be no one to take care of us.”
