“Lockdown food distribution was a bad idea”- ‘Odike’ fires at gov’t



Mr Akwasi Addai Odike, founder and leader for United Progressive Party (UPP) has remarked as a poor delivery, government’s handling of the covid-19 pandemic.

The businessman-turned-politician has indicated that authorities have not been up to the task as in the enforcement of WHO precautionary measures plus other interventions.

The soaring rate of confirmed cases on covid-19 he opined owes to the fact that the leadership was not quick to effect the closure of all boarders immediately after WHO gave a signal somewhere November last year of the possible global spread of the virus.

Speaking on Nhyira Fm’s morning show as scooped by leakynews.net, the outspoken politician also gave his impression on the dry and cooked food items which were dispensed to vulnerable by government during the partial lockdown.

He hit the nail on the head that the idea of food sharing wasn’t a good intervention.


For Mr. ‘Odike’, authorities
should have considered a daily financial stimulus package for all Ghanaians during the course of the partial lockdown.

Mobile money Transfer of at least GHs50 to each Ghanaian according to his assertion could have been much better than the free food distribution.
