Ghana has closed down all its beaches along its coastal regions with immediate effect.
A statement signed by the Chief Executive Officer, Mr Akwasi Agyemang, copied to the Ghana News Agency (GNA), said the decision was a precautionary measure taken to avoid public gathering.
It warned that, “The GTA with support of the National Security and Ghana Police Service will begin patrols of the beaches from Tuesday, March 24, to ensure compliance with the directive”.
The statement further advised the public and tourist facility operators to be mindful of the precautionary measure since it was in their own interest.
