Akufo-Addo's pointless decision to lift lockdown betrays his own words in COVID-19 fight - Adib Saani
Adib Saani a security analyst is not happy with President Akufo-Addo's decision to lift the restriction of movement in Accra and Kumasi.
The two cities were under a partial lockdown for 3 weeks but in the President's address to the nation on April 19, 2020, he lifted that restriction.
Mr Saani is of the view that this decision betrays his words concerning the fight against the novel coronavirus.
Portions of his statement read: "The President HE Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo won international admiration with his acclaimed statement, “we know what to do to bring our economy back to life. What we do not know how to do is to bring people back to life”.
However, the pointless decision to lift the lockdown in Accra, Kumasi and their environs betrays the President’s own words so far as combating the novel coronavirus is concerned."
Ghana's case count as of April 19, 2020, stood at 1,042 with 9 deaths and 99 recoveries.
