Expressing her thoughts on social media, the “Perfect Picture” actress said, there are so many grey areas in President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo's new directive.

"While I appreciate the efforts the government is putting in to control this pandemic; I believe this #lockdown was not fully thought through. So many grey areas, loopholes, misinformation, and confusion. Like some people have already run away to other regions," she tweeted this on March 29, 2020.

President Nana Akufo-Addo declared a partial lockdown of Accra and Kumasi effective 1am on Monday, March 30, 2020.
