Barbara Oteng-Gyasi Donates Three Months Salary To Help Fight Covid-19



The New Patriotic Party (NPP) incumbent Member of Parliament (MP) for Prestea Huni-valley Constituency, Lawyer Barbara Oteng-Gyasi on Monday, March 30 donated her three months salary to the Covid-19 fund instituted by President Akufo-Addo.


The donation is to augment the government's efforts against the coronavirus outbreak.


The gesture is a collective decision by ministers, deputy ministers, senior political appointees at the presidency to donate fifty percent (50%) of their salaries, for the next three months, that is April, May,


and June, to the COVID-19 National Trust Fund, established by the President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, for the fight against the virus and to assist in the welfare of the needy and the vulnerable.


As a result, the MP, who doubles as minister for tourism, arts, and culture has given approval to the Chief of Staff, Hon. Akosua Frema Osei-Opare, to notify the Controller and Accountant General to effect these deductions at source for the period and transfer the accrued monies into the Fund.


Hon. Barbara Oteng-Gyasi became MP for the good people of Prestea Huni-valley constituency in 2016.


She is currently the unopposed NPP Parliamentary candidate for the area and is seeking to be re-elected as Member of Parliamentary in the upcoming general elections slated for December 7 this year.


The COVID-19 pandemic has led to more than 34,000 deaths worldwide with over 700,000 infections.


In Ghana, the number of cases has crossed 150 with a death toll of 5.


The pandemic has brought activities to a grinding halt across the globe.
