President Akufo Addo has said he appreciates the inconveniences that has come about as a result of the Covid-19.
Addressing Ghanaians in his 16th Covid-19 updates, he explained that government’s decision to continuously keep students home remains parts of efforts and sacrifices we must all make to save lives.
“I appreciate fully the inconvenience and the financial burden the continued stay at home of children are posing to parents and guardians. Fellow Ghanaians, these are a necessary price to pay in our efforts to protect the lives of our children, as well as to limit and contain the spread of the virus in our country”.
He further entreated Ghanaians, especially, persons who disregard the safety protocols to strictly adhere to them or face the law.
“Let me remind those amongst us, who want to continue to disregard these protocols, that severe sanctions exist in our laws for such persons, who will want to endanger the rest of the population through their actions and negligence. The law enforcement agencies will, where necessary, apply these measures without fear or favour, ill-will or malice, and without recourse to a person’s ethnicity, gender or religion,” he said.
