Jubilee House – President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has said that he is finding himself extremely busy since he was advised to go on self-isolation after close contact with a person infected with COVID-19.
His excellency was in a jovial state during a virtual meeting with members of his Campaign Communications Advisory Team via Zoom.
‘The Devil is in the detail’ and his alone time as had him reading all the memorandum and papers he could not read, he recounted on the virtual call.
Self-discipline is important in the fight against COVID-19.
According to the President, complying with the protocols will determine the level of success of the fight against COVID-19.
“I think there is a need to continue stressing on the need for respecting the COVID protocols. We are in government and it is very important that, that aspect of our concern about the need for our people to be safe comes out positively in everything we say. People have to take the protocols seriously.”
On Gender banters
He emphasized the fact that the presidential election was crucial in the sense that this was the first time in the country’s history that the presidential sit was contested by a past president and the current one who ousted him from power.
He said that the focus should not be on gender vilifications which were a way of deflecting the issues on the ground, but that the results of both presidents should be highlighted.
“We need to set before the Ghanaian people clearly the situation we inherited on the 7th of January 2017. It is critical because, without that reference, it is difficult to measure the quality of the achievement. You have the records; dumsor, high rate of inflation, low rates of growth, widespread unemployment, a certain level of demoralization in the country, and within three years, this very bleak economic narrative has been transformed.”
A statement dated July 4, 2020, and signed by the Minister of Information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, said President Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo had decided to go on the 14-day self-isolation despite testing negative for the virus.
