Award-winning musician, D-Black has complained about the high accommodation cost levied at Ghanaians who are being evacuated.
The Government of Ghana has receiving evacuating Ghanaian citizens stranded in other countries.
Those being evacuated are covering their own flight tickets and are also paying for the hotel accommodation for their 14-day mandatory quarantine when they land in the country.
The bill for their accommodation is between GHS 17,000 and GHS 24,000.
This, according to him, is expensive and most of the evacuees cannot afford it.
D-Black wants the government to relook this and find ways of making it more affordable.
The musician is currently in the United States of America where he has been seen participating in Black Lives Matter protests.
The Prez @NAkufoAddo & The Government really needs to look at this, the majority of Ghanaians stranded in the USA can not afford to spend 17,000 ghc (Economy , 3 star hotel) – 24,000 ghc ( Business , 5 star hotel) for 14 days just to make it home in the next 10 days …
