Covid-19 lockdown… Apaak Extends Help *To Builsa South community in Accra

Noted for his  kind gesture, minority Member  of Parliament  (MP) for Builsa South constituency in the Upper East Region,   Dr. Clement Apaak  has once again demonstrated why he is  loved by his constituents.

The Builsa South legislature last week went to the rescue of  the vulnerable in the Builsa South community in Accra  affected by the lockdown when he donated food  items to them.

The items  included 20 bags of rice, 12 cartons of cooking oil, 2 bags of salt and 4 cartons of liquid soap.

According to Dr Apaak, he was touched by the complaint  he received  that, some various Builsa South groups  in the lockdown areas in the  Greater Accra Region were unable to access the state-funded food.

It would be recalled that barley a month ago, the Builsa South MP also  donated some health-related items  to the  Builsa  South Directorate to help in the fight against coronavirus also known as Covid-19.

When asked why the gesture for his constituents in Accra, the MP who is perceived to be the ‘darling’ boy  of  former President and the 2020 flag- bearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC),   John Dramani Mahama  told Today in an interview that, the   “move became necessary since government resorted to restricting human movement as a measure to control the spread of the coronavirus”.

The  restriction though is for the good of the citizenry, he noted  had  also brought untold hardships to Ghanaians “who survive on their daily earnings,  many of whom are our own people who have travelled from far Buluk in search of economic opportunities”.

Dr Apaak used the occasion to call on the requisite state agencies and institutions to ensure fairness, equity and transparency in the distribution of the  food to the vulnerable.

For his part,  a member  of  the Builsa South community in Accra,   Felix Anamsi who saw to the distribution  of the items to his people  said,he was so excited how his people appreciated the gesture.

“Indeed this gesture got many sighing great relief due to their trying situation”,he said.

He explained that all communities of people from Builsa South living in Accra were contacted through their various leaders for the  items.

”This is the kind of leadership any people would wish for” he said while admonishing his people  to observe the safety protocols suggested by health professionals.
