Gov’t won’t pay any celebrity for COVID-19 ‘ambassadorial’ tasks – Oppong Nkrumah

The Minister of Information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah has said that the government does not intend to pay any celebrity for helping create awareness on the Coronavirus pandemic.

This comes a day after it was reported that the government was considering engaging some influential Ghanaian celebrities to help in sensitising the general public on the outbreak.

According to the Minister of Information, government is only planning on using some of these celebrities because they have large following and could use their platforms to help educate their followers on the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Government doesn’t intend to pay any celebrity to go out there to become ambassadors for COVID-19. I mentioned in our meeting with the GJA, NMC etc. that we were also thinking of having persons with large following share our messages,” Oppong Nkrumah said.

He stated categorically that will not attract any fees.

He made this statement while addressing the press on Wednesday, March 18, 2020.
