“At least we’ve got a president who’s thinking outside the box in these unusual times” – NDC’s Dela Coffie

Folks, if you ignore the noise and pay attention to basic details, President Akufo-Addo is turning out to be one of the best Presidents in recent history. His social mitigating measures for the COVID-19 crisis announced a while ago is far-reaching and very impressive:

☑Tax free income for three months plus 50percent increase in basic salary for frontline workers.

☑Government is going to make available GHC600 million soft loan scheme with a 6-months morotorium period and 2-year repayment plan for micro, small & medium scale businesses.

☑Government will absorb the water bills for all Ghanaians for the next three months, i.e. April, May and June. All water tankers, publicly and privately-owned, are also going to be mobilised to ensure the supply of water to all vulnerable communities.

☑The Ghana Water Company Ltd and the Electricity Company of Ghana have been directed to ensure the stable supply of water and electricity during this period.

☑ There will be no disconnection of water and electricity supply during this period.

☑Free Transport for all health workers .

At least we’ve got a president who’s thinking outside the box in these unusual times.

Stay safe folks!!!
