The Vice President of Ghana, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has also donated 3 months of his salary to the COVID-19 fund to help combat the deadly coronavirus.

This comes just a day after President Nana Addo also did the same thing by donating his 3 months salary to this cause.

Dr. Bawumia announcing his decision via Facebook wrote:

“Fellow Ghanaians, March has been a difficult month for us as a nation with the Covid-19 infection.

Samira and I empathize with all infected with the virus, and we wish them a speedy recovery. We also express our sympathies to families of those who have lost their lives through the virus. May the souls of the departed rest in the bossom of God.

Last night, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s address to the nation anchored on the bold measures taken by the government to help contain the Coronavirus pandemic and prevent further spread.

Ultimately, we should all endeavour to stay at home, observe the preventive measures and together create a Covid-19-free society.

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.
