Ghanaian actress and social commentator, Lydia Forson has taken a swipe at the Vice President for comparing the current coronavirus pandemic to the power crisis the country went through under the NDC.
According to Lydia Forson, she is utterly disgusted and extremely disappointed that we are comparing COVID-19 to the power crisis.
Lydia Forson made the comments following a press conference organized by Dr. Bawumia to respond to former President Mahama’s criticisms of how President Nana Akufo-Addo has managed the economy.
During the Vice President’s press conference Monday, he compared how former President Mahama managed the power crisis, popularly called Dumsor, that crippled the country in 2015.
But in a tweet sighted by YEN.com.gh, Lydia Forson said “I can’t believe we’re comparing DUMSOR to COVID-19, a pandemic that threatens our very human existence. I’m utterly disgusted and extremely disappointed by this comparison."
Sharing a video of Dr. Bawumia’s press conference on Twitter, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, Ministry of Information said “Two major crises have befallen our country in the last decade – Dumsor and Covid-19. The management of the economy under two different leaders during these crises periods is something we should all be interested in.”
Kojo Oppong Nkrumah also got his fair share of the rant from Lydia Forson.
She said she knows Kojo Oppong Nkrumah would have grilled anyone who made this statement if he was still on radio.
“@konkrumah I know if you were still on air you would have grilled anyone who made this statement . smh," she tweeted.
