In a bid to curb the spread of Covid-19, the president of Ghana Nana Akufo-Addo, has announced Sunday that there will be a three-month free provision of water for its citizens.

He assured that citizens of the country will enjoy uninterrupted water and power supply.

“Furthermore, government will absorb the water bills for all Ghanaians for the next three months, that is April, May and June. All water tankers, publicly and privately-owned are also going to be mobilised to ensure the supply of water to vulnerable communities.”
