President Akufo-Addo has urged the public to continue to adhere to Covid-19 safety protocols as that is the surest way to completely defeat the disease.

During his 18th address to the nation since the start of the pandemic, President Akufo-Addo implored Ghanaians to look out for each other, as being each other’s keeper would help the nation attain its target of zero positive Covid-19 cases.

“I have said before, let us continue to look out for one another, and remain each other’s keeper, and I am confident that, by doing so, we will emerge victorious in the fight against Covid-19.

“Zero active cases must be the goal, and I have no doubt that, together, and with the help of God, this too shall pass, for the Battle is still the Lord’s.

The President stated that currently, “the outlook on our battle against Covid-19 remains optimistic”, for which he thanked God and the Ghanaian people.

That notwithstanding, he believes “it is important that we maintain this positive position, especially with a few weeks to the holding of the December 7 presidential and parliamentary elections”.

Although the country’s fight against the virus has been largely successful, Akufo-Addo urged Ghanaians to maintain strict compliance to the protocols.

“So, I urge all of you, my fellow Ghanaians, to continue to comply with the strict hygiene, mask-wearing and social distancing protocols that have become part of our daily routines,” he said.

“I have no doubt that, together, and with the help of God, this too shall pass, for the Battle is still the Lord’s,” he concluded.
