0 69

The General Secretary of the main opposition party, Johnson Asiedu Nketia has called on Ghanaians to stop blaming the President, Nana Akufo-Addo for lifting the partial lockdown placed on four cities as part of measures to deal with the Coronavirus (COVID-19) disease.

The President last week shocked most Ghanaians when he announced that he has lifted the partial lockdown after three weeks.

Many believed the President’s action was not the best particularly when the country was recording an increase in the number of confirmed cases of COVID-19.

But the President Advisor on Health, Dr. Nsiah Asare insisted that the President’s decision to lift the lockdown was borne out of science.

Commenting on this on Okay FM, the General Secretary said Ghanaians should stop blaming the President for lifting the lockdown.

“People are blaming the President but you can’t blame him. If he had not done that people would have stormed the street for food to feed their families. The problem is the poor planning and execution of food distribution to the vulnerable…” he said.

He blamed the government of mismanaging the distribution of food to the vulnerable during the lockdown.

“People mismanaged the feeding of poor and the vulnerable….. they rejoiced after the lifting of the lockdown because of extreme hunger”, he said.
