The Chief of Staff, Akosua Frema Osei-Opare has through her Director of Political Affairs (DPA) presented over 500 packs of food and water to people who live in slums and squarters.

Presenting the food, Asiedu Bekoe (DPA) popularly known as Protozoa said the Chief of Staff has noticed with admiration the effort of the MP for Ayawaso West Wuogon, Hon. Lydia Seyram Alhassan, MCE for Ayawaso West Municipal, Hon. Sandra Owusu-Ahinkorah and Corporate organisations towards the poor.

She is also aware of the fact that from this week the Buffer Stock Company through NADMO will commence the sharing of uncooked food to households: what she is doing now is to augment all these efforts as she has being doing but this time with concentration on squarters.

The Chief of Staff will continue to share cooked food because as a former two-term MP for Ayawaso West Wuogon she is aware of groups of people who have no means of cooking their own food because they have no coooking utensils or coal pots.

You will find such people in the fitting shops, sleeping in front of shops, hawking etc.

As a mother these are the people she is targeting. Most of these people cannot immediately go to work because they have either lost their capital as a result of the Covid 19 or it will take sometime for business to start.

Hon. Frema Osei-Opare will also like to take the opportunity to educate the public and beneficiaries that the lifting of the restriction calls for more carefulness so as they enjoy their new found freedom and food they should think of the caution they have to exercise as they go back to work.

They must wear their mask and observe all the hygiene protocols to stay fit.
