President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has extended the free electricity and water package for Ghanaians for the next three months.
The President made this known in his address to the nation today, January 3, 2020. This, according to Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is to help reduce the impact of Covid-19 on Ghanaians.
