Gov’t will not yield to pressure from celebrities to open borders – Samini

Ghanaian artiste, Samini has said he trusts the government to make a better judgment as far as closing the borders and curbing the spread of the coronavirus is concerned.

According to him, it would not take “action or inaction from any of us to make the government do what they need to do for international safety”.

Since the borders were closed in March restricting travels, artistes including D Black, Sarkodie and Pappy Kojo have made it known they were stuck outside Ghana.

They continuously through social media pleaded that the borders be open for them to come back home.

Their fans and a few notable people joined in to share their opinions on why they feel these artistes deserved some sort of ‘celebrity treatment’.

However, the same cannot be said of Samini who is in Canada with his family. He has not been heard pressuring the government or asking that some leniency be extended to his colleagues stuck outside the country.

In an interview with Andy Dosty on Hitz Fm, he asked Samini why he has not joined his colleagues who are pressuring the government.

“I just looked at it from be broader picture. I know that the government also knows exactly what they are doing and internationally government are working based on what’s going on internationally across the boarder so if it isn’t time for the government to open the borders, I don’t think our pressure will make them do that,” he stated.

He added “although I can’t wait to get back to my regular routine, I have always just sat back and given the government the benefit of the doubt because Ghana as a nation is one of the countries doing very well in managing the Covid-19 pandemic.”

He also believes people are talking too much instead of just trusting the government to make the right decisions.
