He indicated that it was time Ghanaians came together and support Government and agencies responsible for protecting the lives of the citizenry.
Vulnerable groups like widows and Kayayees’ were presented with rice, cooking oil and hand sanitizers to help cushion them in the ongoing lockdown.
The about 20,000 bottles of hand sanitizers which were presented to the various institutions and individuals were made by the Adonko Company Limited and named Adonko Original Hand Sanitizers.
The unveiling of the product by the company according to Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Angel Broadcasting Network, S.K Acheampong is part of the efforts to increase original hand sanitizers on the market.
He bemoaned the influx of fake sanitizers that have flooded the market after the outbreak of COVID-19.
Mr Acheampong explained that the Adonko hand sanitizer is 70 percent alcohol-based which makes it different from other products on the market.
He advised the public to desist from buying sanitizers that are not endorsed by the Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) and the Ghana Standards Authority(GSA) since they have other health implications.
