Smartandstuck.com is reliably informed that the junior brother of seasoned journalist and Managing Editor of the Insight Newspaper, Kwesi Pratt, Nana Banyin Pratt, has died.
Until his death he was a PR expert and lecturer at the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA).
Our sources have revealed that he died from Coronavirus.
Meanwhile President Akufo-Addo in his 22nd address to the nation yesterday, noted that he will be left with no option than to impose a partial lockdown – if the need be to curtail the spread of the deadly virus because it is better to be safe than to be sorry.
“It is important that I remind all Ghanaians that severe punishments exist on our statute books for persons breaking the law on the mandatory wearing of masks. Should anyone be arrested by the security agencies disregarding this directive, that person will be dealt with strictly in accordance with law.
We do not want to go back to the days of partial lockdowns, which had a negative impact on our economy and on our way of life. But should that become necessary, i.e., should the number of active cases continue to increase at the current rate, I will have no option but to re-impose these restrictions because it is better to be safe than to be sorry. So, together, let us all ensure that we respect the protocols”, he said.
According to the president, 13 regions out of the entire 16 regions have been hit by the deadly coronavirus.
He admonished Ghanaians to adhere to the covid-19 protocols in order to bring the situation under control.
