President Akufo-Addo has appealed to parliament to immediately debate, approve and pass into law the old-aged Affirmative Action Bill when re-introduced to the floor. He made this appeal during his State of the Nation Address (SONA) on Tuesday, March 9.
According to the Ghanaian Leader, “Gender, Children and Social Protection Minister Sarah Adwoa Safo will re-introduce the long-existing bill into parliament for debate and passage into law. Our mothers need that law”.
Meanwhile, government is set to embark on rehabilitation of access roads and establish two new psychiatric hospitals.
Addressing the legislature, President Akufo-Addo insists, Ghana is in good health despite the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The emergence of covid-19 led to closure of Ghanaian boarders and other restrictions to contain, combat and prevent spread of infectious disease. Ghana is currently going through vaccination after government received 600,000 doses of AstraZeneka vaccines as part of measures to contain and prevent the spread of the pandemic.
“Vaccination, protocols will allow us to open up the country”, president told parliament.
