More and more world leaders are heaping praises on President Akufo-Addo for his powerful #stayathome message as he announced a lockdown of the country last Friday.

President Akufo-Addo while delivering the speech to update Ghanaians on measures taken by the government to fight the pandemic said “We know how to bring the economy back to life. What we do not know is how to bring people back to life” urging citizens to adhere to the lockdown rules and stay at home to prevent contracting the virus.

The president’s message was well-received drawing lots of positive feedback from leaders across the world, who applauded him for making such a thought-provoking and bold statement.

A typical example is the Director-General of the World Health Organisation, Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, who described President Akufo-Addo’s message as a powerful one, commending him for uttering such a message to the world.

“Thank you for sending such a powerful message to the world, my brother @NAkufoAddo, President of #Ghana. Together, for a healthier, safer, fairer world! Together against #COVID19!” he tweeted.

Following that, several world leaders have also commended President Akufo-Addo.

British Broadcaster; Piers Morgan, EU Ambassador to Ghana; Diana Acconcia and other known figures described President Akufo-Addo as a true leader and applauded him for his message on the coronavirus.

The two-week lockdown President Akufo-Addo announced on Friday, March 27 is in force as Ghana begins its most drastic measure to contain the spread of the novel coronavirus.
