Obey simple COVID-19 instructions – Abuakwa South MCE to citizenry
The Municipal Chief Executive of the Abuakwa South Municipal Assembly in the Eastern Region, Mr Kojo Ofori-Safo, has said that there is a great possibility for Ghana to avoid total lockdown and to defeat the coronavirus in a short time if the citizenry obey the simple instructions given out by the health professionals.
He said if China, where the virus originated from, had started living normal lives, then Ghana was blessed to have great leaders to stop the disease in the shortest possible time.
He has, therefore, appealed to Ghanaians “not to force the authorities to take desperate decisions but stay at home if they do not have any special need to go outside”.
“We can defeat this deadly virus within a shorter time if we obey the simple instructions and also discipline ourselves to stay home,” he stated.
The MCE said this when the Kibi Goldfields Ltd presented Veronica buckets, rubber buckets and bowls, boxes of assorted soaps, sanitisers, detergents and packets of tissues to the assembly last Tuesday to help the campaign and the fight against the coronavirus in the area.
According to the MCE, the whole world was in a crucial moment where presidents, doctors, nurses, prominent and wealthy men and women, children and the aged were all dying because of COVID-19.
“Though, everybody has his or her own choice, it would be very prudent that we all choose to stay at home to save the nation and the future generation yet unborn,” Mr Ofori-Safo said, and thanked the management of Kibi Goldfields Ltd and assured that the items would be used for the intended purpose.
The PRO of Kibi Goldfields Ltd, Barima Okopu, who presented the items on behalf of the company, said that management was pleased to contribute their quota to the fight against the pandemic.
He pledged the company’s unflinching support to the assembly to help curb the disease.
