Ghana president to gov’t officials: You can’t leave the country


In an effort  to minimize disruptions of “government’s domestic works,” the president of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has issued a temporary ban on foreign travel by government officials.

Excluded in the ban are ministers of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration.  All other ministers, their deputies, metropolitan, municipal, district chief executives and government agencies’ heads are affected by the travel ban.
