The President of Ghana, Nana Akufo Addo, made this known through his 7th state of the nation address on Sunday, April 19, on the novel coronavirus in Ghana.

According to him, Ghana is at its critical stage in the fight against the pandemic, adding that the lockdown will not be extended.

The news was greeted with excitement (though there were some mixed reactions) especially on social media.

The news is truly exciting and we hope that the precautionary measures would be observed to help curb the pandemic but we can’t forget about all the exhilarating moments we experienced on the Internet (especially Instagram) during the 3-week lockdown.

There are tons of Ghanaian internet comedians who gave users great laughter and helped manage boredom during the lockdown, however, some stood out.
