Government lacks political direction in the fight against COVID – Mintah Akandoh

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.”


When COVID-19 was intense, they seem to be serious about it. He will address the nation from time to time…and he will be like fellow Ghanaians…:joy::joy::joy:. They don’t have any specific direction on how to handle the situations.

They’ve already put measures in place we need to adhere to these protocols in other to survive , the government is doing what it’s suppose to it’s up to us to also follow protocol. I mean what else can they do

The fight against coronavirus is not only a political one. The people must use their brains at least for once in their lives

. The virus doesn’t know who a politicians is , it attacks from any angle so let’s all come together and fight the pandemic

The fight was lost before it even got started. From the very minute we recorded the first case, it was clear that we do not have a direction or a laid down plan in fighting covid. So many expensive mistakes were made and this has impacted the country greatly.
