"I have directed the Controller and Accountant General to pay my next three months’ salary, i.e. April, May and June, into this Fund. Let me also thank, from the bottom of my heart, the churches, financial institutions and individuals who have already made donations to help in this fight. God richly bless them. " (

I must bless your name for this great love you have selflessly shown to Ghana our motherland. Your gesture has shown the measure of love you have in your heart for the people of Ghana. Having given out your three month salary to support the combat against Covid-19, a step to help save the good people of Ghana which you cherish and hold in high esteem is unbeatable. This kind gesture at this period shows how you manage your family in times of crisis. We love you as a father and will cherish you as long as you continue to act as a father to us all. All the same, we love you and we will want to say thank you and may God bless you. The salary is yours and you could have chosen to do otherwise but you gave it to the people of Ghana. We say thank you.

I know for a certainty that some Ghanaians who love their parties more than Ghana will definitely want to politicize what the president has done. To debunk what the president has done, some politicians will claim that Nana Addo is not the first president to have given out some of his salaries to support the nation. Should any party member politicize this kind gesture of our president, that individual or groups of individuals must bow their heads in shame. What I expect from all other politicians is for them too to support with funds to fight this pandemic.

I must acknowledge the great love others are showing to Ghana through fund donations to help fund the fight against Covid-19. Thank you, stakeholders and individuals, who truly love and cherish Ghana our motherland. God bless you.

Thank you Nana Addo for donating your next three month salaries to help fight Covid-19. Show us more of such your love for Ghana in various aspects too.

God bless you Nana Addo.
