President Akufo-Addo has announced that in the coming days, Ghanaians will enjoy a stable supply of water and electricity.

In addition, water bill for every household for the months of April, May and June will be absorbed by government.

The president in his fifth address to the nation amidst the outbreak of Coronavirus on April 5, said the measures are a part of the Coronavirus Alleviation Programme aimed at protecting households and livelihoods.

The programme is also intended to minimise job losses, and source additional funding for promotion of industries to shore up and expand industrial output for domestic consumption and exports.

”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 mobilised to ensure the supply of water to all vulnerable communities,” he averred.

He noted that government through the Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection and Local Government and Rural Development and other state agencies is providing food for four hundred thousand households during the period of the partial lockdown.

”The Ministries of Gender, Children and Social Protection and Local Government and Rural Development, and the National Disaster Management Organisation (NADMO), working with MMDCEs and the faith-based organisations, have begun to provide food for up to four hundred thousand individuals and homes in the affected areas of the restrictions,”

”This begun in Accra today and will begin in Kumasi tomorrow. It will come in the form of dry food packages and hot meals, and will be delivered to vulnerable communities in Accra, Tema, Kumasi and Kasoa,” he said.
