Auto Parts Limited (APL)-Nissan Ghana has donated a Nissan Hardbody Pick up 4x4 single cabin to the COVID-19 National Committee. This was done in a brief ceremony at the Jubilee House as part of APL’s own contribution to efforts aimed at combating the pandemic.

Speaking during the presentation ceremony, Mr Subhi Accad, Managing director of APL-Nissan Ghana expressed the readiness of his organisation to respond to the President’s declaration of “A whole Ghana Approach” to the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic, adding that, this was also “a call to duty; a duty to ourselves, a duty to our country and a duty to humanity.”

He hoped that his organisation’s contribution would go a long way in helping win the war against the pandemic, expressing the hope that it will “assist the work of the COVID-19 Board of Trustees as we join efforts to fight the Corona Virus.”

He also saluted the frontline workers, who include doctors, nurses, health administrators, cleaners and other ancillary workers for their steady efforts which are bringing good results so far. This statement drew applause from the former Chief Justice and members of the committee in appreciation of the front-line workers.

Former Chief Justice, Mrs Sophia Akufo, who is the Chairperson of the National COVID-19 Trust Fund, received the item on behalf of the state and thanked the organisation for the much-needed noble gesture. She expressed confidence that efforts like this would be pivotal in securing victory in the fight against the deadly disease. She also assured the donors that, items donated would be judiciously used to fulfil the purpose for which they were donated.
