The President of Inner-City Tribal Chiefs, Chief Mohammed Sungtaaba, has reiterated the need for the citizenery to continue to observe the social distancing protocols, regular hand washing with soap under running water, frequent use of hand sanitizer as well as put on nose mask to prevent the spread of the Covid-19 disease in the country.
He also stressed the need for all to stay home if there’s nothing pressing to do in town to prevent further spread of the dreaded Coronavirus disease.
Chief Sungtaaba said this when he distributed food items to members of inner-city communities.
Chief Sungtaaba stated that the Inner-City put in place measures to cater for the vulnerable groups in the society in the wake of the Coronavirus disease and subsequent partial lockdown in some parts of Ghana.
He noted that as part of efforts by the Inner-City contribute to mitigate the spread of the Coronavirus, he had to help the needy in their community with food items during the lockdown in Ghana. The items included rice, oil, egg and water.
Donating the items, Chief Sungtaaba stated that one of the major effect on the lockdown was hunger especially among the less privileged in the society.
He added that the homeless, casual workers, head porters (Kayayei) as well as street beggars were those who suffered the most due to lack of money and food as a result of the lockdown which led to commercial businesses been shutdown.
According to Chief Sungtaaba, it is time for corporate organisations and Philanthropists to show love to the needy.
He revealed that a lot of people have been coming to him for support and the best way he can do to help the masses was to distribute food to the needy people around him.
He expressed worry over claims that the government recognise Zongo community more than the Inner-Cities saying they’re all under one Ministry.
