Popular Ghanaian rapper, Sarkodie has joined a host of other Ghanaians lauding President Akufo-Addo for what they describe as the show of commendable leadership in the fight against the coronavirus outbreak in the country.
In a video posted on his Twitter handle, the BET award-winning rapper said the President, together with his COVID-19 team, have been on top of their game in their handling of the pandemic and deserve some appreciation.
Though Sarkodie is one of the people stuck outside the country due to the closure of borders, he admits the situation was an unpleasant one due to measures laid down for the safety of all Ghanaians.
“I’m still stuck in the states, I really do miss home but as much as I miss home I totally understand these measures taken to control the spread of the pandemic, for everyone’s safety and hopefully things get normal again’
“First off let me take my hearts off to the President and his team for being on top of their game in handling this COVID-19 situation. We all appreciate,” he added.
According Sarkodie, despite the fact that a lot of measures have been put in place to fight this disease, the country still needs a lot of funds to enable it completely overcome the pandemic.
He entreated Ghanaians in the country to donate towards a fund-raising initiative by the Embassy of Ghana in the USA to assist Government’s efforts in handling the outbreak.
“I know it’s not going to be an easy fight especially for a developing country like Ghana, a lot of resources will be needed, a whole lot of funds will be needed and I’m pretty sure the government will do their best but I still feel as a people we need to support in our own way cause it’s really not just going to affect us, we have relatives who are also at risk at the same time.
“And that is why I’m doing this particular video. I was on the phone with the Ghana Embassy here in the States, in DC, and they have this initiative which I totally endorse. So the Ghana embassy has partnered with the US-based churches, professional medical associations, the Ghana council across the US and in other countries and the purpose is for them to raise funds to fight against COVID-19 and to support Ghanaians in Ghana and out here in the states so I don’t see this to be a political thing, it’s uniting Ghanaians all over the world to support fight this pandemic especially back home,” he said.
