The Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the McDan Group of Companies, Dr. Daniel McKorley has saluted Ghanaian workers on the occasion of International Workers’ Day, which falls on the 1st of May every year.
The Business Mogul in a message posted on his Facebook Page and sighted by BestNewsGH.com, emphasized the crucial role being played by Frontline health workers in the fight against the COVID-19 Pandemic in the country.
According to Dr. McKorley, the hard work of the frontline health workers in these crucial times in the life of the country is the reason why the country keeps rising.
Dr. McKorley wrote ‘’#MayDay. From all of us at the #McDanGroup, we say Ayekoo to all workers especially frontline health care providers in the fight against covid-19. Your hard work is the reason Ghana keeps rising. Happy Workers’ Day to everyone’’
The McDan boss has been one of the major pillars in forefront leading the fight against the COVID-19 Pandemic in the country.
He is credited for being the first Businessman to yield to President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s call for the private sector to support the fight against the pandemic, when the virus first broke in Ghana.
He funded the manufacture of tens of thousands of 4.5 litre gallons of hand sanitizers using local raw materials, and distributed same to various organisations across the country free of charge.
He also funded some ten entrepreneurs who proved they could produce hand sanitizers in commercial quantities using local raw materials.
It therefore comes as no surprise that he is giving special mention to frontline health workers in the fight against the COVID-19 disease in his May Day message.
May Day, the 1st of May every year is set aside to celebrate workers across the globe. It is a public holiday set aside to recognize the contribution of workers.
In Ghana, May Day celebrations are always marked by parades and messages from the President and the Trades Union Congress (TUC).
This year, the celebrations have been cancelled because of the outbreak of the COVID-19 Pandemic and the ban on social gatherings.
