Former President John Mahama has said the government must give the people of Ghana a plan and strategy about how it intends fighting the coronavirus outbreak and not just prayers.
He was reacting to Akufo-Addo’s declaration of Wednesday, March 25, as a fasting day for both Christians and Muslims.
Also, the president had earlier invited some Ghanaian pastors to the Jubilee House for prayers.
The Vice President, Mahamudu Bawumia, had also met with Muslim leaders on the issue.
Mahama was speaking at the end of a three-day fasting and prayer session declared by the NDC on Sunday.
He said further that Ghanaians must rise above personal and partisan interest and fight coronavirus as a country.
“Our leaders owe this nation not just prayers but a plan, too,” he added.
He also disclosed the NDC’s willingness and desire to help the government fight the outbreak if invited by the NPP.
Meanwhile, Ghana’s confirmed coronavirus cases stand at 21 with one death.
The dead person was a Lebanese trader based in Kumasi.
The Ministry of Health has said earlier that the affected persons were responding well to treatment and so far 8 of them had recovered.
