Communications strategist, Raymond Ablorh has accused Information Minister-designate Kojo Oppong Nkrumah of telling Ghanaians just what he is told to say with respect to COVID-19 without giving it any thought, adding that he is following “blindly” and contributing to apparently messy way the coronavirus pandemic has been fought in the country.
Mr Ablorh’s criticism follows comments by Mr Oppong Nkrumah to the effect that there is no data to support assertions that political campaigns prior to the December 7,2020, General Elections contributed to the spread of COVID-19.
“Before the campaigns, these politicians stopped giving COVID-19 updates. They campaigned briskly amidst huge crowds spreading the virus. They’re done, so they’ve returned with it as if they care. Furthermore, they just aren’t serious leaders.
And, we’ve very young people like Oppong Nkrumah contributing to this madness…
How old is Oppong Nkrumah? He’s just following blindly and telling us whatever he’s told to tell us. Otherwise, how could he tell us that their campaigns didn’t cause COVID-19 spread but our parties and other activities did?” He wrote.
The country is battling with COVID-19 as new infections increase accompanied by higher mortality rates, especially among younger people. Health experts have called for more decisive ways to decrease the spread of the virus.
Notwithstanding the increase in the spread of the virus, the Government has reopened schools at all levels, instructing that the safety protocols be adhered to. The Ghana Police Service has been told to crack the whip on persons who fail to observe the safety protocols.
