CEO of Wonda World Estates and Petronia City Development, Nana Kwame Bediako, has donated his luxurious property located at Osu on the Oxford street in Accra, Ghana as a quarantine or isolation centre.
This gesture is to support the fight against the Coronavirus pandemic in the country which stands.
The West African nation has a total of 205 confirmed cases with 5 deaths and 31 recoveries.
The Real estate developer noted that his 5-star apartment will serve as a safe place for nurses, doctors and other medical staff.
Nana Kwame Bediako also known as ‘Freedom Jacob Caesar’ doubles as the founder of Kwarleyz Group, which comprises of Wonda World Estates, Petronia City Development, New Africa Construction, and Belfast City & Property Management.
“We are hoping that the disease does not affect more people in Ghana. But should the need arise, we are preparing to work with government and health organizations to utilize No 1 Oxford Street Hotel and Suites as a centre to house victims and/or medical personnel.
“We invested over $50 million to complete No 1 Oxford Street which recently opened in January but I am moved to offer the property to be used for good, to help my people during this critical time,” Mr Bediako hinted.
He is however, calling on wealthy individuals and institutions to support in whatever capacity they can especially the poor and vulnerable in the society.
Meanwhile, Bishop Gideon Titi-Ofei has withdrawn his offer of a 100-bed capacity located in Tema, to be used as an isolation centre after neighbours of the facility protested his decision.
The residents expressed concern over the disease which is highly contagious, claiming it could expose them to the deadly virus.
In response to the resident’s concern, the Bishop said other options are been sought after to support the fight against Covid-19.
