Managing Editor of the Insight newspaper, Kwesi Pratt has said he feels pity for President Akuffo Addo as he continues to battle the coronavirus and its negative impacts.
The president, in the wake of the novel coronavirus has been taking lots of decisions together with his appointees as they look to mitigate the impact of the virus.
Recently, President Nana Addo announced an ease in some of the imposed restrictions since the pandemic broke out in Ghana and said he looks to opening up the country in phases.
He announced that effective Friday, June 5, 2020, a total of 100 people can now attend private burials and wedding ceremonies while churches and mosques follow an abridged format for religious services.
Speaking on Peace Fm’s Kokrokoo about measures taken by government in the fight against the virus, , Kwesi Pratt said the president deserves sympathies as these are difficult times to lead a country.
“I feel pity for the President…..in this current dispensation; every President should be pitied…in Ghana anyone who doesn’t sympathize with the President in this current state is wicked . . . In the first place, the economy is not doing so well and to carry this burden as President of Ghana. It is huge and so I feel pity for the President,” he stressed.
