Former President and flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress, John Dramani Mahama has advised the Akufo-Addo led government to act in curbing the spread of the novel coronavirus while praying for divine intervention.

In a Facebook live session to end the 3-day prayer and fasting declared by the opposition NDC, former President Mahama affirmed his support to government to help fight the pandemic.

Reiterating his commitment, the NDC presidential candidate said “We must act even as we pray! I have made a firm commitment to support the authorities in whatever way possible, and whenever called upon, to combat this pandemic. Over the last week, I have forcefully, thanks to my Communications Team, led a public education drive that is promoting effectively the introduction, education, and practice of the recommended WHO protocols aimed at helping stop the spread of the COVID-19.”

Mr. Mahama also announced a technical team of experts the party has put together to help government control the spread of the virus.

“I have also already announced that the National Democratic Congress (NDC) is committed to assisting government in this fight by availing all technical and logistical resources at our disposal. As evidence of our seriousness in that respect, we have assembled a technical team to guide our efforts and to lead the NDC’s response to the evolving situation. The team is an assembly of experts from the many fields that will be required to implement a national action plan on COVID-19,” he stated.

Meanwhile, President Akufo-Addo has also declared Wednesday, March 25, 2020, as a national day of fasting and prayers to seek for God’s mercies in these trying times.

According to him, God is the only one that can save the nation from the pandemic.

“Whiles we continue to adhere to these measures and ramp up efforts to defeat this virus, I urge all of us also to seek the face of the Almighty. So on Wednesday 25th march 2020,  I appeal to all Ghanaians, Christians, and Muslims to observe a national day of fasting and prayer.”

“Let us pray to God to protect our nation and save us from the pandemic. I thank the men and women of God who prayed for the nation on Thursday and with the vice-president on Friday, for their interventions,” he said in a televised address to the country last night, Saturday, March 21, 2020.

So far, 21 confirmed cases of coronavirus have been recorded in the country with one death, bringing the existing cases to 20.

President Akufo-Addo addressing the nation yesterday, March 21, said 8 people are recovering and are being treated at home.
