COVID-19: Ablekuma West MP Partners MCE, CODA To Distribute PPEs Constituents In Constituency
The Member of Parliament (MP) for Ablekuma West, Ursula Owusu-Ekuful has partnered the Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) of Ablekuma West Municipal Assembly, George Cyril Bray and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Coastal Development Authority (CODA), Lawyer Jerry Ahmed Shaib to distribute some Personal Protective Equipments (PPEs) to Electoral Commission officials and some constituents in the Constituency.
The team on their tour carried out public education on COVID-19 and also distributed face masks and hand sanitisers.
The exercise forms part of an intensive public education being embarked on by the Authority to ensure that Ghanaians living within the Coastal Development Zone understand issues relating to the pandemic.
CODA says its efforts are aimed at distributing face masks and hand sanitisers to the most vulnerable groups in the society such as frontliner workers, petty traders, fisher folks, farmers, commercial drivers, and the media.
Enhanced Hygiene Etiquette
While distributing the PPEs, Madam Ursula Owusu Ekuful educated the constituents on the need for them to comply with the safety protocols.
Some constituents who received their face mask and sanitizers thanked the MP, MCE and CODA for their kind gesture.
They assured the leaders of their commitment to enforce the protocols and ensure stakeholders remained safe.
Places visited include; Last Stop, Chemunaa, Glefe, Shiabu and Mamponse.
"Wear Your Mask" Campaign
CODA, an implementing agency under the Ministry of Special Development Initiatives (MSDI) is leading the implementation of the Infrastructure for Poverty Eradication Programme (IPEP) in the 109 constituencies of the six (6) regions that make up the Coastal Development Zone.
Following the lifting of the partial lock down of Greater Accra and Greater Kumasi in April, 2020 due to the outbreak of the new corona virus pandemic, CODA has launched the “Wear Your Mask” campaign, an agenda which seeks to reach out to people at the greatest risk of infection.
The Authority’s efforts have been geared towards educating the public on preventive measures to end the spread of the virus.
