President Akufo-Addo

President Akufo-Addo has appreciated churches for their role in helping government manage the Covid-19 outbreak. 

According to him, they made a tremendous contribution to the fight against the pandemic. 

The President said the involvement of the churches in the dissemination of information about the pandemic was worthy of commendation.

Speaking at a meeting with the leadership of the All African Council of Churches at the Jubilee House on Tuesday, President Akufo-Addo said the collaboration between the church and government was well manifested during the outbreak.

One he said should be maintained for the betterment of the country. 

“The churches in Ghana almost rose to as a man-to-man to play a very important role trying to bring relief and sustenance to our people who are trying to go through this very difficult period of Covid-19”, he said.

“Today, Coronavirus is a relatively innocuous disease and we know a lot about it. Back then, it was unknown and difficult to understand, but the churches were a critical part in finding some solutions for the people of Ghana and I will continue to express deep appreciation and gratitude.”

Already, President Akufo-Addo has announced plans by government to honour and reward some individuals and organisations in Ghana’s fight against Covid-19.

Some 32 religious bodies and institutions are among the categories to be recognised.
