The President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo today hit back at the opposition party, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) for saying the government has failed to take the needed steps to stop the spread of the Coronavirus in Ghana.
Former president, John Dramani Mahama has through his digital conversation with Ghanaians attacked the government’s way of handling the coronavirus in the country.
In his speech, the president told Ghanaians to ignore his political opponents as they have nothing to say.
“I know some political actors will want you to believe that our current numbers represent a failure on the part of Government. Do not begrudge them. They need to make such comments for their political survival.”
He went on to urge Ghanaians to stay together and help fight the virus for life to get back to normal.
“Fellow Ghanaians, this virus, as we have seen the world over, is no respecter of persons, and has wreaked its havoc on every country on the planet. We can defeat it if we continue to look out for one another, and remain each other’s keeper. We are fighting a common enemy, and it is imperative that we do not allow religious, ethnic or political differences to get in the way of 7 certain victory.
So, we cannot allow a few persons, who wish to use these differences to scuttle our collective fight, to succeed. Over the course of our history as a people, we have had to overcome several trials and tribulations: slavery, imperialism, colonialism, tyranny and dictatorship, and we have overcome them all so that, with the help of the Almighty, we are, today, building a free, independent State, a State that, despite the urgency of the crisis, is governed by democratic institutions, and respect for fundamental human rights, especially freedom of speech.”
