Motor King Limited, has donated 50 Veronica buckets with supporting metal stands and a cash amount of GHS10,000.00 to the Northern Regional Coordinating Council to support the fight against COVID-19 in the region.

Madam Abubakari Aisha Bancie, the General Manageress, Motor King limited, distributors of motor tricycles and agricultural-related machinery in Ghana said the gesture formed part of her firm’s social responsibility, adding that it was vital that they rallied their support behind the regional COVID-19 response team fighting the pandemic.

“We believe that for our country to win this deadly coronavirus battle, we as a people need to have a collective effort and so government alone cannot do this, that is why we have decided to help with these items”, she said.

“Even though the Northern region had not recorded many cases of the virus, we have to ensure that it does not escalate here and we as an organisation will not turn our backs on the people who support our industrialization mission and patronize our product. We will continue to offer assistance to rid the region of this global pandemic”, she emphasized.

Madam Bancie appealed to members of the public to adopt personal hygienic lifestyle and frequent handwashing under running water, adding that they should at all times ensure physical distancing and minimize human contacts, and also frequently sanitize their hands to prevent them from contracting the disease.

“I entreat all and sundry to strictly adhere to the precautionary protocols being outlined by appropriate authorities and together, we can fight the deadly virus in our country”, she added.

Mr Salifu Saeed, Northern Regional Minister, who received the items on behalf of the Council, lauded the Motor King Limited for the gesture and said it came at a time when the country was fighting an unseen enemy.

He called on other cooperate entities and individuals to emulate the efforts of Motor King Limited by supporting the Northern Regional Health Directorate to equip it to effectively discharge its duties to residents.

Dr Eleezah John, Northern Regional Health Director, also expressed gratitude to the firm for the support, saying the items would help enhance their work and also aid to address the COVID-19 issue in the region.
