As a way of helping to lessen the burden on residents of the Manhyia South Constituency during the partial lockdown period, Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh also known as NAPO has donated 1,200 bags of rice and 1,200 boxes of cooking oil for onward distribution to his constituents.
The items will be distributed to all the households in the six electoral areas in the Manhyia South Constituency, which he represents in Parliament.
The economic lives of a number of people are being adversely affected by the partial lockdown imposed on parts of the country by President Nana Akufo-Addo in an attempt to win the war against the Coronavirus disease.
Some people within the Manhyia South constituency are however not spared from the economic challenges hence the donation by the Dr. Opoku Prempeh who also doubles at the Minister of Education.
The donation according to him was to “send a clear message to Ghanaians about the need for us to unite; stay positive; do not panic; remain strong, and be each other’s keeper in these trying times, which will definitely pass soon.”
Opoku Prempeh also used the opportunity to admonish Ghanaians to stay at home, practice social distancing and uphold all other directives from health experts, to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
