In his quest to salvage the people of Old Bortianor and curb the increasing number of covid-19 in the constituency, the parliamentary candidate for Bortianor Ngleshie Amanfro Constituency in the Greater Accra Region, Sylvester Tetteh, has promised to put veronica buckets at vantage points at Old Bortianor and its environs.
He said despite the efforts by government to raise awareness about COVID-19, many people are still misinformed and do not respect the precautionary measures. While some have difficulties understanding the importance of social distancing, others have limited access to daily updates and information. This he claims has contributed to the increase of the number of cases recorded in the Ga-South Municipality and the nation at large.
Speaking to elders, residents and indigenes of Old Bortianor in the constituency when he distributed Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), he advised them to adhere to government’s measures put in place to contain the spread of the disease.
He also cautioned against the politicisation of governments effort in addressing threats posed by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
According to him, the disease is no respecter of persons and does not discriminate between the rich and the poor or party colours, and it therefore behooves the citizenry and group leaders to rally behind the government to win the war against the virus.
