Former President John Dramani Mahama has taken shots at President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and his response to Ghana’s coronavirus crisis.
According to Mahama, the President’s handling of the crisis has been short-sighted, lacking effective planning.
Mahama held a ‘digital conversation’ with his followers on Thursday and attacked the President’s coronavirus response.
“It is important to note that Government’s humanitarian intervention to alleviate the unintended but predictable consequences of the lockdown were an abysmal failure,” Mahama said.
“The distribution of food was chaotic and disorderly and in some cases partisan. It flouted all protocols of social distancing and prevention of spread of the virus.
“Definitely no careful planning went into the implementation of this initiative as is characteristic of this administration,” Mahama fired.
After an initial 3-week lockdown to help contain the virus, the President lifted the restrictions on Monday, a move that was widely criticized.
