Abraham Amaliba, a member of the legal team of the opposition NDC claims Ghana failed to record a single case of the Ebola epidemic in 2014 because of the good management of then president, John Dramani Mahama.
He however blamed President Akufo-Addo for the spread of the deadly Coronavirus in Ghana.
Speaking on GHONE TV Wednesday, Mr Amaliba told host Serwaa Amihere that the spread of coronavirus in Ghana could have been averted if not for the bad management of the President.
Asked by the host if Akufo-Addo is the cause of the spread of the virus in Ghana, Mr Amaliba said “Yes, Akufo-Addo himself brought it when he went to Norway.”
