MP for Jomoro, Dorcas Affo-Toffey is pushing for the re-opening of land borders across the country to ease the hardship brought unto residents living in and around border towns especially those within the Jomoro constituency.

According to her, the incumbent government has ignored the economic lives of those around these areas.

He, therefore, argued that the continuous closure of the borders has brought untold hardships due to reduced patronage of services with several others also losing their capital.

She also revealed that there’s been a mass exodus of young men and women from her constituency due to the dwindling economic activities.

Government on March 30, 2020 imposed an emergency border restrictions to curb the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Although the President in September 2020 re-opened the country’s airports for international travels, land borders are yet to be opened.

But the Jomoro MP insists that the measures put in place to contain the spread of the virus at the airports can be replicated at the various land entry points to keep the disease in check.
