Accra, Feb. 4, GNA – Madam Cecilia Abena Dapaah, Sanitation and Water Resources Minister-designate, has said government is determined to implementing programmes to protect all Ghanaians against the COVID-19 pandemic.
She called for a global partnership and cooperation among nations in the fight against the disease.
Madam Dapaah said this when she received the Danish Ambassador to Ghana, Mr Tom Norring, and the UNICEF Country Representative, Madam Anne Claudia Dufray, at the Ministry in Accra.
