President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo will resume work from today, Monday, July 20, after completing his 14-day precautionary self-isolation.

“Additionally, he will attend to some engagements outside Accra during the week.”
Mr Oppong Nkrumah expressed gratitude to all those who expressed best wishes to the president while he was in self-isolation.
