The Vice President of Ghana, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has also donated his three-month salary (April, May, June) to the COVID-19 Fund.
He is now the second government official to donate his salary to aid the fight against the disease after President Akufo-Addo kick started with a donation of his three-month salary when he announced the establishment of a COVID-19 fund during an address to the nation on Friday [March 27, 2020].
The fund, as the President announced, will be managed by an independent board of trustees and chaired by former Chief Justice, Sophia Akuffo, to receive contributions and donations from the public to assist in the welfare of the needy and the vulnerable.
The Vice-President while addressing Ghanaians via Twitter on the COVID-19 situation in Ghana said;
“To support the kind gesture by the President of directing the Controller and Accountant General to pay his April, May and June salaries to Covid-19 Fund, I am donating three months of my salary starting from April to support the fight against Covid-19,” the Vice President tweeted on Saturday.
The Vice-President also advised Ghanaians to stay at home and “observe the preventive measures and together create a COVID-19-free society.”
