Oheneyere Gifty Anti, CEO of GDA Media Ltd, Gender Advocate/Activist, Host of The Standpoint and Motivational/conference Speaker has stated that she does not understand the way some Ghanaians are behaving as we are battling to contain the deadly corona virus that has engulfed the entire world.
Speaking in a telephone conversation with Muniru Ibrahim,the host of Radio Progress Super Morning Drive on Monday,she said the reality of the disease is that, once people are asked to be locked down everyone should comply because of the contagious nature of the disease.According to her, she realized how serious the issue is when she arrived in Ghana from the United Kingdom. She hinted that she was captured together with other dignitaries who boarded the flight and mandatory quarantined. While in quarantine she said the only time she interacted with persons was when health practitioners came in to check on her or when caterers come to give her food.
She indicated that she knew it was not punishment given them but for the general good of the good people of this country
Gifty Anti used the opportunity to call on fellow workers in the media space to be careful with themselves whenever they go out to work. She said journalists should avoid passing their recorders and microphones all around without sanitizing them.
