Praise-singing Council of State members won’t stop COVID spread – Mahama to gov’t

Former President John Mahama has once again taken a swipe at government’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic in Ghana.

According to the NDC flagbearer, government has been more concerned with praising itself than addressing the spread and realities of the virus in the country.

Addressing Ghanaians through his Digital Address, Mr Mahama said the spread of COVID-19 could have been put in check if government had listened to ‘sound reason’ from Ghanaians.

“Parading students leaders, Council of State Members among others to sing praises on you at the Jubilee House doesn’t stop the spread of the virus,” Mahama said.

Meanwhile, COVID-19 cases in Ghana have risen to 12,929 as at the latest count on Thursday. The death toll remains at 66 with recoveries standing at 4,468.
