NPP, NDC support COVID-19 fight in Agona West

The Member of Parliament for Agona West, Mrs Cynthia Morrison, has advocated a strict adherence to social distancing and appropriate hygiene protocols to curtail the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic in the country.

“It will be in our interest as Ghanaians that we do not disregard directives intended to stop the spread of the deadly virus but rather put them into practice for our own safety,” she advised.


Mrs Morrison, who is also the Minister of Gender, Children and Social Protection, made the appeal after presenting some items to institutions and residents in her constituency to help fight against the spread of the virus in the area.

The items (valued at GH¢25,000) included 3,000 hand sanitisers, 300 Veronica buckets, 50 packets of tissue paper, 50 gallons of alcohol-based disinfectants and 30 boxes of gloves.

The items are to be distributed to the Ghana Police Service, Ghana National Fire Service, National Ambulance Service, the Municipal Health Directorate, markets as well as other communities within the municipality.

Frontline staff

She noted that the gesture was to help protect frontline workers who usually got into contact with persons suspected to have contracted the virus.

“There is no doubt that frontline workers are exposed to danger in their daily fight against the virus and such items are needed to keep them safe as they came into contact with suspected persons,” she stated.

She gave an assurance of her continuous support throughout the period until the disease was controlled and if possible eradicated throughout the world.

For his part, Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Mr George Adanye of the Swedru Divisional Police Command, who received the items on behalf of his outfit, thanked the MP for the timely support to protect their lives.

He called for more support for frontline workers in the fight against the pandemic that had claimed many lives across the world.

NDC candidate

In a related development, the Parliamentary Candidate for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in Agona West, Mr Paul Ofori-Amoah, has also made a similar donation of alcohol-based hand sanitisers, Veronica buckets and other items to residents in the constituency.

Mr Ofori-Amoah, who was accompanied by some constituency executive members of the NDC, visited Nyakrom, Edukrom, Edukore, Nsunan, Ekurafufuw, Bosompa and Otsenkorang as well as the Main and Mandela markets in Agona Swedru.

He admonished the residents to contribute their quota to help fight the pandemic in the municipality.

“As a municipality, we must step up education to increase public awareness of the virus to control its spread,” he stated.
