Member of Parliament (MP) for the North Tongu constituency in the Volta Region, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has announced a stimulus package to some 659 teaching and non-teaching staff in his constituency to help them cope with the COVID-19 induced hardships.

The beneficiaries of the undisclosed sums include staff from some 45 private schools as well as 89 volunteer teachers in public basic schools who are not on government payroll.

The monies sent via mobile cash transfers, according to the legislator, is aimed at improving the plight of the private school teachers who have not received salaries since March due to the closure of all schools in the wake of the novel coronavirus pandemic.

In a Facebook post on Thursday, May 28, 2020, Mr. Ablakwa disclosed that 30% of the money distributed from his share of the MP’s Common Fund while 20% came from his resources.

The remaining 50%, he indicated, was realised from donors through a fundraising exercise he embarked on.

“I express my heartfelt appreciation to all those whose generosity have helped us make this initiative a resounding success. I am eternally indebted to my army of dedicated volunteers who authenticated the data and verified the MoMo transactions. May God bless every one of you greatly,” he said in the post.

“As I have maintained – we are all in this together, we shall defeat COVID-19 together and like the Phoenix, we shall rise from the ashes together,” the MP added.
