The former president and flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama, has pointed fingers at government for its incompetent national response to the Coronavirus pandemic.
The former president noted that the spike in cases of community spread of the virus can be attributed to the government’s response, which he said put other considerations ahead of science.
He made this known while addressing the leadership of the Ghana Registered Nurses and Midwives Association (GRNMA) during a meeting to discuss the concerns of nurses and midwives.
Highlighting the contributions of the NDC towards helping stop the spread of COVID-19, Mahama revealed that the party’s COVID-19 Technical Team submitted three reports to the government to help fight the pandemic.
He said the absence of a cohesive national response plan to fight the Coronavirus is adversely impacting health workers.
Mahama said the next NDC government will continue to make the health sector a major part of its development agenda by ensuring the provision of more health facilities sustainable jobs.
