Rapper Sarkodie and wife Tracy Sarkcess, D-Black and other musicians stranded abroad can finally heave a sigh of relief as they will soon touch down on their motherland.
The musicians have been appealing to the Government of Ghana to open the borders for their return following the Coronavirus pandemic.
A couple of days ago, Sarkodie’s wife who is locked down together with her husband in the United States tweeted her frustrations over the government’s refusal to open the borders or arrange flights for them to return back home.
But their pleas have not gone to waste as President of the Republic of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has disclosed that Ghanaian nationals abroad will soon be evacuated back to Ghana.
The President, in his 10th nation update on COVID-19 on Sunday, May 31, 2020, eased restrictions on public gatherings but the country’s borders remain closed until further notice.
However, he indicated that “given that there are Ghana residents stranded abroad, a special dispensation is going to be given for their evacuation back to Ghana, where they will be subjected to the mandatory quarantine and safety protocols”.
Although the President didn’t give a definite date for the evacuation, it comes as good news that the musicians’ calls have been heeded.
