The Bui Power Authority (BPA) has donated COVID-19 preventative items to the public affairs directorate of the Ghana Armed Forces (GAF). The donation took place at the authority’s head office, BPA Heights, Airport residential area in Accra.
In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic which is seeing a second wave in the country, the BPA is supporting government’s quest to alleviate the effects of the virus on the nation. Responding to a request made by GAF, items consisting of 100 one-litre bottles of hand sanitizer, 100 one-litre bottles of handwashing liquid soap and five Veronica buckets were donated to the directorate to assist in their preventive measures.
CEO of Bui Power Authority, Fred Oware, in presenting the items on behalf of the Board, Management and Staff of BPA, stated that since the beginning of 2020, the Ghana Armed Forces has been collaborating with the Authority in various activities including the protection of the Bui generating station and its acquired lands. The authority has therefore presented the donation as a reciprocation and appreciation of the GAF’s efforts.
He further stated that the COVID-19 pandemic is a menace that the nation should endeavour to fight on all fronts as he believes that the virus will be eliminated hence the authority is playing its part in helping achieve the national goal.
The spokesperson for GAF, Colonel Aggrey-Quarshie, who received the items on behalf of the Ghana Armed Forces, expressed his outfit’s utmost gratitude to the chief executive officer and the authority as a whole.
He added that the gesture will boost the good relationship that the Ghana Armed Forces had with BPA. He also stated that the Ghana Armed Forces is committed to the COVID-19 fight and the items will help in the observation of the protocols that have been instituted by the government.
