Prez Announces Award To Honour Ghanaians For Contributions Toward Covid Fight

The President of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akuo-Addo, will be honouring some citizens for their contribution towards the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic from 2020 during its peak to 2022.


The first case of the pandemic was recorded in Ghana in March 2020 after cases had been confirmed in China in late 2019 and spread to other parts of the world.


The President intends to award some citizens who “distinguished” themselves in the fight in fulfilment of his promise on August 4 last year.


“Through their actions, they helped protect and preserve our population and won global acclaim for Mother Ghana”, he said.


It is slated for March 14, 2023.


Ghana was recognised for the innovative management of the pandemic by the international community.


In addition to that, President Akufo-Addo said, he will appreciate some legal workers for ensuring an amicable resolution of the maritime boundary dispute with Ghana’s immediate neighbours.


“I will, also, on that day, express the nation’s gratitude to the legal team of men and women who were charged with ensuring that the maritime boundary dispute with Ghana’s immediate, western neighbour, the Republic of Côte d’Ivoire, ended favourably for Ghana, thus ensuring that our western maritime resources, including their potential oil and gas reserves, remained legitimately in our possession.”


He was speaking at the 66th Independence Day Celebration in Ho in the Volta region under the theme “Our Unity, Our Strength, Our Purpose”.
