President Akufo-Addo has described the two years if the Covid-19 outbreak as a difficult period.
He says it was time Ghanaians work together to bring the country back on track.
Addressing Ghanaians on measures adopted to address the outbreak, he appealed to Ghanaians to live responsibly as the restrictions announced two years ago, have been reviewed.
“Fellow Ghanaians, it has been a difficult two (2) years for all of us, and we are seeing light at the end of a very long tunnel. I appeal to all of us to live responsibly, protect ourselves at all times, and do everything we can to stay safe, as we lift these restrictions. Now is the time for all of us to join hands, work hard, and help put our nation back onto the path of progress and prosperity, as we resume full production and increase productivity.
“As your President, I assure you that, sooner rather than later, our economy will rebound from the ravages of COVID-19. The policies we are implementing will, with your active support, help grow the economy at a much faster rate, help create jobs for the youth, and help us overcome the difficulties we are faced with. This too shall pass!! For the Battle is still the Lord’s!!”
