President Akufo-Addo has asked Ghanaians to reject those who perpetuate against the deadely coronavirus pandemic.

This comes on back of the Member of Parliament (MP) for Builsa South, Dr Clement Apaak who described the previous address by the government to absorb the cost of examination fees of current final-year students in senior high schools and other as a means “to score political points.

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo made this known during his 14th live televised address to the nation on Sunday, July 26, 2020.

“As I have said before, the phased opening up of our country puts an individual obligation and responsibility on each one of us, and means that we must continue to remain vigilant, and respect the enhanced hygiene, mask-wearing and social distancing protocols that have become part and parcel of our daily routine. We dare not ruin the successes we have chalked over this period.

“There will always be those who will peddle untruths, and embark on deliberate misinformation campaigns, especially in this era of fake news.

In their irresponsible bid to score cheap points, they escalate mistrust and heighten, unnecessarily, the anxiety levels over the disease in the country.

As we work towards defeating this virus, we should reject completely those who seek to perpetuate falsehood, thereby, creating fear and panic, and call them out when they do”
