Information Officer for Ghana’s Permanent Mission to the United Nations, Frederick Kofi Ameyaw has partly blamed the COVID-19 Response Team of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) for the recent surge in COVID-19 cases.

According to Mr. Ameyaw, the formation of the COVID-19 Team by the opposition party was needless and diversionary.

Explaining why the opposition is blamable for the spike in cases, the Information Officer at Ghana’s Mission to the UN and an NPP communicator noted that the formation of the team robbed the nation of a united front in fighting the pandemic because it created the impression that there isn’t cohesion in the fight.

He further cited that the team members created a wrong perception that President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s administration is exploiting funds meant to combat the pandemic for their personal political gains.

Mr. Ameyaw noted that the NDC Covid-19 team kept watering down every government move and directive in the COVID-19 fight and that has contributed largely to people disregarding the safety protocols, hence the spike.

“I think the formation of the team by NDC was totally unnecessary because it has not contributed anything to the fight – it has rather worsened the case,” he opined.

Mr. Ameyaw stressed that the formation of the NDC COVID-19 Response Team has been counterproductive to the COVID-19 fight because everything they did and said rather pitched the public against the government and that has not helped.

He has suggested that now “our focus must be on our ability to test more to bring the sickness under control”.
