Founder and Leader of the All People’s Congress (APC), Mr Hassan Ayariga, has urged Ghanaians to abide by the COVID-19 protocols in order not to contract the virus. The politician contracted the virus on July 27, weeks after publicly declaring that he would not take the coronavirus vaccine.
However, after battling the virus for nearly two weeks, Mr Hassan Ayariga has turned a new leaf. The APC founder in a Facebook post advised people to heed to the safety protocols. According to him, “COVID- 19 is real and it’s no respecter of persons” hence “Wear your nose mask, wash your hands and stay safe.”
“I am very grateful to GOD for my life. COVID-19 is no respecter of persons. Wear your nose mask, wash your hands and stay safe,” he said in a post on Facebook. He also expressed thanks to health workers and his family for their support during his period of hospitalisation.
“I have just been discharged from the hospital after three weeks of COVID 19. I thank God and my family for all their support and effort. To my wife, I say big thank you, may God continue to bless you and protect you for me. And to my loved ones and all those who prayed for me, I say big big Ayeko”, his post read.
“Help me thank all the doctors, nurses, EMT, orderlies and all medical officers and personnel of International Maritime Hospital (IMAH) and KBTH for their wonderful and excellent service and treatment. And to all those who interceded on my behalf, I say big thank you”, he added.
