The president, Nana Addo Danquah- Akufo Addo has given Ghanaians free water supply for the next three months to enhance sanitation and continuous electricity supply to all Ghanaians during the lockdown period so that people can stay at home while avoiding social distancing.
The president announced this package to Ghanaians during his 5th public address since the outbreak of the deadly coronavirus in Ghana.
“Again, the Ghana Water Company Ltd and the Electricity Company of Ghana have been directed to ensure the stable supply of water and electricity during this period. In addition, there will be no disconnection of supply. Furthermore, Government will absorb the water bills for all Ghanaians for the next three months, i.e. April, May, and June. All water tankers, publicly and privately-owned, are also going to be mobilized to ensure the supply of water to all vulnerable communities.”
