Ghanaian Hiplife and Hip Hop rapper Edem have alleged that the arrival test at Kotoka International airport is a pure ‘scam’ and ‘rip off’.

According to the rapper, he has been to so many airports within the last couple of weeks and none of the airports he visited made him do a new test upon arriving at the airport indicating no country makes you pay to take another COVID 19 test asides the one to did before entry to that country.

He alleged that the COVID-19 test at Kotoka is a total scam and a rip-off by the authorities of the airport and the government in general.

Edem questioned as he doesn’t understand why a passenger is mandated to take a COVID-19 within 48 hours before traveling to Ghana and upon arrival, is made to pay for a different COVID-19 test at the airport before granting entry into the country.

 Disclosing this in a tweet, he wrote: "No country I have been to in the past couple of weeks makes you pay to take another Covid test asides from the one before entry...The ghana test on arrival is a pure scam and rip-off…It should stop...How can you test 48hrs later and test again smh"

The COVID-19 test at the port of entry at the Kotoka International Airport has been subjected to many criticisms for the past couple of months as many regards it as a means of the government taking money from travelers.
