President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has extended a heartfelt Easter message to Ghanaians even amid the Coronavirus (COVID-19) restrictions.

The season, he said, is a good opportunity to reflect on the ultimate sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross at Calvary.

Ghanaians, he said, should therefore also make sacrifices in these difficult times for the sake of humanity’s survival.

The President underscored the importance of celebrating the occasion by attending Easter Conventions, making-merry, visiting friends and family and having a good time as always been the Ghanaian way.

He, however, stressed the need to do the exact opposite of what has always been the norm for Ghanaians during this Easter.

He said, “Stay at home. I ask you to keep your distance from your parents, grandparents and extended family, and celebrate this holiday apart.”

“Do not host a big family gathering, and sternly refuse to attend one if you are invited. Your relatives will understand you are doing this out of love for them.”

President Akufo-Addo extended special Easter goodwill message to heroes of the Coronavirus battle, health workers and members of the security agencies for their patriotic efforts.

“On behalf of my beautiful Rebecca, my children, grandchildren and entire family, and members of Government, I wish you all a joyous and happy Easter, even if a restrained one.”

“May God bless us all, and our homeland Ghana, and make her great and strong,” he added.
