He also mentioned the compassion and commitment of President Akufo-Addo in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic as an exceptional feat while stressing on the importance of rolling out social interventions to cushion the difficulties that came with the pandemic.
He stressed that President Akufo-Addo has done enough to ensure that Ghanaians in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic are better-taken care of in the moment of crisis regardless of the consequences on the country’s economy.
“In my humble opinion, Nana Akufo-Addo and the NPP have done well. See where the Ghanaian economy was and see where we are now, Nana Addo has done fantastically well,” he said.
He made this assertion when Fair Play Transport Union held their maiden meeting after they left Co-operative Transport Union.
