“If you have registered already there are two things you can do. Firstly, you can serve as a guarantor for up to 10 people who are eligible to register,” Akufo-Addo’s post read.
“Secondly, you can convince your friends and family to also register,” it added while calling on all Ghanaians to wear their masks and maintain social distancing when the go to the centers."
