The minority in parliament has called on the Akufo-Addo led government to express appreciation to former President John Dramani Mahama for the role that the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT], widely known as Aayalolo is playing in Ghana’s COVID-19 fight.
According to the Minority, the erstwhile Mahama and the NDC government have come under fierce criticism and condemnation by the NPP on the basis that the NDC administration got nothing right while in government.
Speaking at a Press Conference on Wednesday, April 8, 2020, the minority leader, Haruna Iddrisu expressed that he cannot fathom why the NPP government is engaging the Aayalolo buses, which is an initiative of President Mahama, to convey frontline health workers to various hospitals without giving credit to the originator of the initiative.
He stressed that since the initiative of the former President has become indispensable in Ghana’s combat against the coronavirus pandemic, the NPP government should show maturity and give credit to the former President.
“You [are] busing nurses with Ayalolo Buses, so at least after all President Mahama and the NDC got it right. The abandoned Ayalolo of the NDC and President Mahama have become useful to support Ghana’s collective effort to fight it [coronavirus]. Where attribution is necessary, they should be able to do that,” Haruna Iddrisu told the press.
