Jackie Appiah has said she is not looking to be paid or compensated in any way for educating the public on the novel Coronavirus disease.
A few days ago, the Minister of Information, Honourable Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, debunked rumour that, government was hoping to pay chosen ambassadors to help educate the populace on the spread of the virus.
Artiste Shatta Wale, has however, insisted he will not be an ambassador for free, even if he is called upon.
Speaking in an interview on 3FM, the delectable actress says, she believes it’s her civic responsibility as a celebrity, to use her status to influence people.
Jackie Appiah who says she has been affected by the virus, including movie premieres, said everyone should come on board to help the fight.
“We all need to educate each other…This is a global thing, it’s not just my industry alone. It’s quite sad…sometimes I use my platform to educate people,” she said.
She added that: “I don’t need to wait for government; nobody needs to wait for anybody to call them. I think it is right for an individual to preach to people to talk to people that’s why we have the numbers. God has given us the numbers to educate people…everyone needs to educate people because people don’t understand [what is going on]”.
“I’m doing this already for free right now nobody is paying me. I’m already doing it without being paid.”
