Controversial artiste manager Lawrence Asiamah Hanson, popularly known as Bulldog, has slammed President Akuffo Addo and his government for introducing EI 164 which empowers the state to sentence people who fail to wear nose masks in public to a fine and jail term up to 10 years.
The President of The Republic of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo Addo, has appended his signature to a new Executive Instrument (E.I 164), which allows for a person to sentenced to a jail term of four to ten years if that person fails to wear a face mask in public.
The E.I which was signed on June 15th forms part of the measures put in place by the government to check the spread of the coronavirus. The said E.I which was also gazetted the same day, will apply everywhere in the country for the next three months. The E.I also allows the Police the authority to make random checks to ensure compliance.
But Bulldog describes the move as senseless and insensitive, slamming government for failing to provide its citizens with ordinary nose masks when they have amassed a lot of revenue in the form of grants and loans in the name of COVID-19.
“When other governments around the world are helping their citizens in these unfortunate times you are here worsening our plight. Shame on you!!! You go see this December!!!”. He wrote.
