According to the actor-turned -politician, the amount is meant to provide cushion to traders who have been hit hard by the coronavirus, as a result of the dip in business.

To the coconut and roasted plantain sellers, the corner shops, the table top retail outlets, the evening kenkey, bread/egg, waakye and vegetable sellers and all those who work hand to mouth to take care of their families, hope is coming,” Dumelo tweeted on Wednesday, April 22.
