Former Chief Justice Sophia Akuffo, Chairperson of the Board of Trustees for the fund

Former Chief Justice Sophia Akuffo has assured Ghanaians that proceeds from the COVID-19 Trust Fund will be disbursed in a transparent and accountable manner.

The Fund has so far accrued a total of about GHC34 million, and is expecting much more in the coming days.

Speaking to the press on the sidelines of the donation of Personal Protective Equipment (PPEs) and an ambulance to the Ga East Municipal Hospital on Wednesday, April 22, the former Chief Justice, who is the chairperson of the board of trustees of the Fund, outlined a broad plan to utilise the funds it has received, for the benefit of all Ghanaians.

“I want to assure the public of our commitment to the job that we have been sent to do, and we’ll make sure that all the distributions will be made in accordance with the statutes,” she said.

She said once institutions are satisfied, markets across the country will be provided with more Veronica buckets, sanitisers, among others.

“We want to make sure the resources reach the regions as widely as possible,” she added.
