Akufo-Addo eased COVID restrictions for NPP primaries, EC – Mahama

Former President John Mahama has said President Akufo-Addo eased COVID-19 restrictions in Ghana just so the ruling NPP could hold its parliamentary primaries and for the electoral Commission to go ahead with its mass registration exercise.

According to him, the restrictions were lifted earlier than it should hence the spike in COVID-19 cases in the country.

“I know that the easing and all is to create a conducive environment so that the EC can go ahead with their new register and the NIA can continue with their issuance of the Ghana card and of course so that the ruling party the NPP can hold their congress to elect their flagbearer and Parliamentary candidates,” Mahama during his Digital Conversation on TV Thursday.

He also took aim 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.

“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.
