In the recent video aired on the various tv stations across the country, President Nana Addo encourages us. More so he also made us aware of the health benefits of eating our local foods. All in the aid to help citizenry build immunity to the covid19 virus.
In a new twist, the president listed some local foods to help the citizenry; oranges, kontomire, millet, cashew nut, crab, plantain, okra, dawadawa, brown rice and mushrooms.
Nana Akufo-Addo explained that these foods contain Vitamins A, B6, C and E which have proven to be highly relevant to help boost the immune system against diseases. “Fellow Ghanaians, this virus, as we have seen the world over, is no respecter of persons, and has wreaked its havoc on every country on the planet. We can defeat it if we continue to look out for one another, and remain each other’s keeper. We are fighting a common enemy, and it is imperative that we do not allow religious, ethnic or political differences to get in the way of certain victory,” he urged.
On another note, the president gave the opposition party a subtle jab. ” I know some political actors will want you to believe that our current numbers represent a failure on the part of Government. Do not begrudge them. They need to make such comments for their political survival. On the contrary, we must be emboldened in the knowledge that the four thousand, seven hundred (4,700) persons infected, so far, with the virus, have been identified, taken out of the population, isolated and are being treated,” the President said.
