Former President, John Dramani Mahama has accused Government of hoarding information on Covid-19 cases to Ghananians.
Mr. Mahama who also expressed worry over the reported positive cases involving two (2) MPs and 13 parliamentary staff said the development is “very disturbing”.
The 2020 Presidential Candidate of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) made these remarks in a statement issued Friday, 29th May, 2020.
“Reports that the virus has spread to the Chamber and offices of Parliament is very disturbing. It adds to the urgency of the situation we face as a country, and while it is important to give hope to citizens it is absolutely necessary to be transparent and communicate the full picture of the extent of the disease.”John Mahama stated.
According to him, government has also failed in providing effective public education in the fight against the dreaded Covid-19 disease.
“Government has unfortunately not managed public education on coronavirus efficiently, while the latest communication creates the false impression that all is well with the management and spread of the disease.
“The advice from the President and other government officials that we should begin to learn to live with the disease suggests that you and I must take our destiny into our own hands as far as COVID-19 is concerned,” he added.
