Artiste manager and staunch NDC supporter Lawrence Nana Asiamah Hanson, aka Bulldog, has lashed out at President Nana Akufo-Addo over the new face mask law.
According to Bulldog, the law is ‘senseless and insensitive’ adding that Akufo-Addo has failed woefully as a President.
A new executive instrument (EI) passed this week sets stiff punishments for those who don’t wear face masks in public.
Anyone who flouts the law faces a prison sentence of four to 10 years or a fine of GH¢12,000 to GH¢60,000, or both.
The law has been widely criticized and Buldog has done same.
According to him, Akufo-Addo has failed as a leader and the new law is too harsh and should be repealed.
He wrote on Facebook: “This is senseless and insensitive! You promised 1 this 1 that and you failed woefully! You cannot deliver ordinary 1 mask 😷 1 person?
“Even before Covid hit us, people could barely feed based on the haphazard way you run this economy! Now that we are down and out and finding our feet you threaten imprisonments and fines? If so, what is your purpose as an administrator of Ghana’s wealth? What happened to all the grants and loans you got in the name of covid19? Can’t you provide free protective masks to the helpless and vulnerable in society?
“When other governments around the world are helping their citizens in these unfortunate times you are here worsening our plight.Shame on you!!!You go see this December!!!”
