“In Accra we’re going to two places which is Pokuase and Teshie. We have two places in Wa, and then one in Central, Eastern, Ashanti, Brong Ahafo and Volta regions. We’re giving basically food items, provisions of all sort and a cash donation of Gh¢2,000; just to give it some good effect, as they prepare to celebrate”, he added.
