Use Local Languages For Covid-19 Education Campaigns – Lydia Forson

Ghanaian actress, Lydia Forson, has called for the education of people in their local languages and through their local leaders.

According to her, the use of the English Language does not send the message across as compared to the use of their native language.

Her comment comes after some residents of Chorkor, a suburb of Accra, trooped to the beach on Sunday April 12, in celebration of the Easter.

The military went to the beach to chase them home for flouting the directive of President Nana Akufo-Addo.

In Ghana currently, the lockdown due to coronavirus has been extended by another one week.

This according to the Ghanaian government, is as a result of the increasing numbers of confirmed cases of Covid-19 in the country.

Meanwhile, Lydia Forson has urged the government to disseminate information to the locals in a language they better understand.

“I’ve said this repeatedly, people aren’t taking this seriously because we’ve not given them enough to make them see the severity of this.”

“We need to reach and educate people in a language they understand, use their chiefs, pastors and everyone they may listen to.”

“There’s a reason why we’re able to put a ban on noise making and they obey, or a curfew when a traditional leader dies.”

“Communicate with them in a language they understand!”

“The abrofos3m (English) is clearly not working- those that matter aren’t necessarily on social media or watch the news.”

“Even in the various languages it has to be strong so they get it.”

“Also how did these people get there without being stopped by security officials?”

*sigh I’ve said this repeatedly, people aren’t taking this seriously because we’ve not given them enough to make them see the severity of this. We need to reach an educate people in a language they understand, use their chiefs, pastors and everyone they may listen to. There’s a reason why we’re able to put a ban on noise making and they obey, or a curfew when a traditional leader dies. Communicate with them in a language they understand!
