The Minister for Monitoring and Evaluation, Anthony Akoto Osei has been stuck in the United States for more than a month.
The Tafo MP,Akoto Osei according to sources, was out on a national task before the President ordered the closure of the airport making it difficult for him to return into the nation.
The border closure, which is a result of measures to prevent the importation of the COVID-19 came into effect on March 22, 2020.
With the extension of the closure by the President, Akoto Osei is set to remain locked out of the jurisdiction for at least, two months.
Meanwhile, Information Minister, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah is quoted saying President Akufo Addo is not responsive of the possibility of bringing the Minister back through diplomatic flights.

However, the Chief of staff had prohibited foreign travels by Ministers other than under crucial conditions.
If Mr. Akoto Osei was out of the country prior to the Chief of Personnel’s instruction which came 12 clear days prior to the closure of the borders, it is uncertain.
There have actually been growing calls by some Ghanaian tourists that are affected by the travel restriction for the government to facilitate their return home.
