Communication Team Member of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Upper East Region, Abdallah Salifu, is blaming the president, Nana Akufo-Addo over the recent spike in Covid-19 cases in the country; saying he has blatantly disregarded the protocols, particularly the wearing of face masks.

According to Mr. Abdallah, President Akufo-Addo set a bad precedence when he decided to ease the Covid-19 restrictions later last year in order for him to be able to go about his campaign activities; coupled with what he (Mr. Abdallah) said was the president’s failure to wear face mask throughout his campaign tours across the country.

Speaking on A1 Radio’s Daybreak Upper East Program, Mr. Abdallah said “Wherever the president went in the 2020 campaign session, he was not wearing mask. Just check the videos; if you have any video contrary to what I’m saying, bring it lets see. When he went to Fomena to campaign, look at the crowd; but he was not wearing a mask. Even when he came here {Upper East Region}, did you see him wearing one?”

But a member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Communication Team in the Upper East Resgion, Samuel Akonga, hit back against the suggestion that President Akufo-Addo was responsible for the increase in coronavirus cases; describing such claims as acts of propaganda.

According to him, it was not true that President Akufo-Addo went about his 2020 campaign activities without wearing facemasks; citing a videos that showed the president campaigning at Kpong- Katamanso and other places across the country with his facemask on.

Despite admitting a number of challenges, Mr. Akonga said the government has over the period demonstrated commitment to fighting the spread of coronavirus; and urged members of general public to also play their part by adhering strictly to the safety protocols outlined.
