President Nana Akufo-Addo has told Ghanaians to put aside partisan politics in
matters relating to Covid-19 outbreak in Ghana.
Addressing the nation for the fourth time since the outbreak in Ghana , the
President made this appeal to Ghanaians on Friday 27 th March 2020.
He urged the nation to be united to fight against coronavirus, saying the common
enemy is the coronavirus and not individual or party.
He said, “Fellow Ghanaians, we are in this together, and government will stand by
you. We are aware that there will be discomfort and difficulties for all of us over
the next couple of weeks. As a responsive government, we will continue to
implement bold measures to mitigate the impact of the coronavirus on business
and households and ensure that job losses are minimized”.
“We can defeat this virus if we all commit ourselves to respecting all the
measures that have been outlined. I am confident that Ghanaians will comply
with them, and the security services will not have to intervene, with extraordinary
means, to enforce them. The love of the country is deeply embedded in all of us,
and I assure you that the security forces will conduct themselves with the
necessary professionalism”. He added.
