Covid-19: Akufo Addo Lacked Political Will to Fight Virus When it Emerged



Member of Parliament (MP) for Juaboso Constituency, Kwabena Mintah Akandoh has stressed President Akufo Addo was politically reluctant to fight the novel Coronavirus when it reared its head into the country.

He attributed the rising cases to the president’s decision to lift the lockdown to enable his party embark on their political activities.

Speaking on  UTV’s ‘Mpu ne Mpu’ programme he said, “…Indeed we needed the highest political will to fight Covid-19 but the leader of the country is interested in political benefits than the health of its citizens. The reason our Covid-19 cases keep going high.”

According to him the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) is not intentionally trying to frustrate government efforts in mitigating the virus, however, it is their duty to keep the ruling party on its toes.

“I will not say that government have done nothing in fighting the pandemic but it can do better to save its citizens than what we are seeing now,” he noted.
