A group of Ghanaians have shown their displeasure at the government regarding the meal they were provided according to the president's directive in a trending video.
The video sighted by YEN.com.gh on the official Instagram handle of Celebritiesbuzz.com shows that the meal was waakye, a Ghanaian dish, with pepper sauce and egg.
The men whose voice could be heard in the background were asking if this was how the government decided to spend the $10 million allocated to fight the novel coronavirus.

It would be recalled that on April 5, 2020, Ghana's president, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo brought out some social intervention measures to help Ghanaians during the lockdown period.
Part of the relief measures was to provide food for many needy people in the affected lockdown areas whose means of livelihoods were cut by the lockdown exercise.
The partial lockdown started on Monday, March 30, at various parts of Ghana including Accra, Tema, Kasoa, Obuasi and Kumasi to contain the spread of COVID-19 in the country.
Meanwhile, a total of three more people have tested positive for COVID-19 in the Upper East Region, bringing the total number of confirmed cases in the region to four.
Myjoyonline.com indicates in a news report that the new cases were detected after contact tracing 44 people who came into contact with the first confirmed case in the region on April 3, 2020.
It is indicated that contact tracing has started to identify everyone the three people came into contact with as all three of them have been put in isolation.
