Osabarima Kwesi Atta urges residents to abide by COVID-19 protocols

Cape Coast, March 28, GNA – Osabarima Kwesi Atta II, the Paramount Chief of Oguaa Traditional Area has admonished residents in Cape Coast and its environs to strictly adhere to the COVID-19 protocols outlined by the government.

He said the protocols though in the best interest of the people of Ghana, could not be achieved if the public failed to comply.

Consequently, Osabarima issued a warning to his people to desist from going to the beach in large groups, which was prohibited due to the ban on social gathering to minimize the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

Speaking in an interview with the Ghana News Agency (GNA), the Paramount chief condemned a recent video, where some residents in Cape Coast were seen partying at the beach despite the ban on social gathering.

He said such practices would not be countenanced going forward, cautioning that whoever was caught would face the full rigorous of the law.

“The rate at which this disease is spreading is alarming. Recently Spain has overtaken China and the number of people dying by the day is alarming.

“We do not want that to happen in Ghana and more especially, Cape Coast. That is why I am appealing to everybody to abide by the regulations laid by the government.

“I am sure as time goes on, the government would review the measures put in place depending on the circumstances at the time. Let us all be law-abiding and go by the regulations for all to stay alive”, he added.
