Fellow Ghanaians, good evening, and thank you for having me in your homes, once again.

Since that time, final year University students, SHS 3 and SHS 2 Gold Track students have all returned to school.

Thanks to technology, I know that we have been joined by hundreds of thousands of our supporters, at home and abroad, who are able to follow the events as they happen.

Fellow Ghanaians, I have to address a matter which has to do with our case count, especially in recent weeks, and which has given cause for anxiety.

Fellow Ghanaians, good evening.

Exactly two weeks ago, I came again into your homes to outline a roadmap for easing the restrictions put in place to help contain the spread of the Coronavirus pandemic in our country.
