THE CHIEF Executive Officer of Marrer Ghana Limited and Susatgad Boat Building and Fishing Industries, Mr Novihoho Afaglo, has questioned Ghana government’s honesty towards citizens regarding the recovery figures of Covid-19 cases.
According to him, all indications point to the fact that government seems to have lost interest in the war against Covid-19 and is focusing on voter’s identification cards and votes.
Mr Afaglo said the government has demonstrated clearly on several occasions that the votes of the people are more important and paramount to him than the health needs of the citizenry, hence the holding of his party’s (NPP) parliamentary elections at the time covid-19 restrictions were in force.
“If you watch the trend of recovery for Covid-19 cases in Ghana, you will realise that it started increasing ahead of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) primaries and the Electoral Commission’s static decision to compile a new voter register,” he stated.
The CEO said based on this overnight recovery statistics, communicators of NPP started trumpeting the achievement of the government on fighting Covid-19.
He again said the call back of final year students to school and the special arrangement by the EC to get those students in the Senior High Schools registered for voting while countries like Kenya and others have their schools closed till until suggest that the NPP government is more interested in the votes of the people than their health and safety.
“It is high time the people begun demanding for a prove of recovery than just words,” he stated.
He called on the people of Ghana to demand from their President some level of seriousness in the fight against Covid-19 than engaging in political gimmicks.
