The Minority in Parliament says government is lost in the fight against the covid-19 pandemic in the country

Ranking Member on the Health Committee Kwabena Mintah Akandoh said there is no political direction to bring the pandemic under control.

Kwabena Mintah Akandoh who is also the Member of Parliament for Juaboso stated, “I have heard about the Ghana Medical Association and other institutions speaking and it is clearly indicated that there are a lot of people who are worried out there.

“What is clearly missing is the political direction. I recall the last time the President addressed the nation on COVID-19 was somewhere on the 28th of February we have recorded new variants but the president is quiet.

“The numbers are skyrocketing and the no president is quiet. It looks as if we have no plan in place, nobody is speaking to us. We need a clear direction from the Political head or the President as he consistently was addressing the nation on issues of Covid.

“I do not know whether or not it is the fact that he himself is guilty of the Covid protocols and so that is probably what has occasioned his huge silence on developments so far.”
