Head of Psychology, Professor Joseph Osafo has admonished the authorities protecting Ghana's borders to heighten their work on the borders following President Nana Akufo-Addo's directive for the opening of the borders.
Delivering a speech on Sunday, March 27, in his 28th update on the COVID-19 pandemic, the President declared that "from tomorrow, Monday the 28th March, all land and sea borders will be opened. Fully vaccinated travelers will be allowed entry through the land and sea borders without a negative PCR test from their country of origin".
In addition, "citizens and foreign residents in Ghana who are not fully vaccinated will have to produce a negative 48-hour PCR result and will be offered vaccination on arrival".
Speaking on Peace FM's ''Kokrokoo'', Prof. Joseph Osafo cautioned the authorities not to let their guard down because the borders have been opened but rather be on alert for any person entering Ghana by land or sea showing symptoms of the viral disease and act accordingly.
''There is a good intention behind what the government is saying but I think a little bit of caution is needed. So, the leaders in various organizations and schools should be careful the way they translate this into something workable in their settings.''
''Those manning those borders should man the borders with integrity'', he stressed.
