He was a Public Relations expert and lecturer at the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA).

Nanabanyin Pratt was also a past executive of the Institute of Public Relations (IPR) and a former Managing Director of the New Times Corporation.

His passing adds to the country’s current death statistics and rising active case figures.

Concurrently, in the most recent address to the nation on the Covid-19, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo expressed grave dissatisfaction in the rising disregard for the Covid-19 safety protocols.

He indicated that he will be forced to send the country back into partial lockdown should the trend continue.
