The Institute of Directors-Ghana (IoD- Gh) has presented a cheque for GHC 33,000.00 to the COVID-19 Trust Fund to help fight the pandemic.
The cheque was presented by Mr Fred Aryeetey, Chief Executive Officer and Mrs Comfort Oduro-Nyarko, Council Member of the Institute.
It forms part of the Institute’s nine initiatives to be rolled out aimed at supporting Government’s efforts at containing the novel Coronavirus disease.
Mr Rockson K. Dogbegah, President of the Institute, commended government and other stakeholders, especially frontline workers for efforts at stopping the spread of the virus and the care and support for infected persons.
He said the Coronavirus had presented an opportunity for the country to develop a national policy for innovation and creativity, which must be anchored on ethical and effective leadership, adding that, “it is our hope that we will overcome the effects of this disease soon.”
“It has also presented us an opportunity to review our way of life, examine our processes and systems as a nation with the aim of developing a more resilient approach towards value creation,” Mr Dogbegah stated.
