The Minister of Communications, Hon. Ursula Owusu-Ekuful has closed down the MTN office at Dansoman Zodiac for failing to adhere to social distancing rules imposed as part of precautionary measures to curb the spread of the deadly coronavirus.
The minister took the action when she went by the office and observed that measures were not being put in place to ensure social distancing.
Angry that the office was flouting the social distancing rule, she, in her capacity as a minister stopped them from operating.
In a Facebook post, the minister indicated that the office will not be given the chance to operate till they put good measures in place.
“This is the scene at the MTN office at Dansoman Zodiac right now. Absolutely no respect for social distancing.
“They have been shut down and will not be allowed to operate till they have better arrangements in place. Reputable corporate organizations like this should not be flouting the law and creating conditions for the virus to spread,” she wrote.
In another post, the minister warned others in the communication sector to take note and observe the precautionary measures or face similar actions.
“Social distancing wahala for MTN… I just happened to be passing by enroute to my office in the constituency and came upon the crowd outside their zodiac office. Shut them down. Other communications sector companies better take note and comply or else!! As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord!!,” she wrote.
