ABC News Ghana is an investigative media house that focuses on politics, sports and the economy. Our work is thoroughly researched, balanced and fair. Our vision is to become the most preferred indigenous news brand for men in West Africa.

Director of Public Health at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital, Dr. Philip Amoo, has described Ghanaian politicians as children leaders who do nothing but talk.

According to him, what politicians in the country do best is to talk and rant without taking pragmatic measures in dealing with situations before they arise or get out of hand.

Linking the pandemic situation here to that of developed countries, Dr. Amoo accused successive governments of being laid back always, and in the rush of a moment, hold consecutive ad hoc meetings speaking gibberish.

“Readiness is no joke, getting prepared is no joke. This ad hoc thing Ghana has done after the Ebola everybody goes and sleep. That is what has landed us in this problem, typical Blacks, we don’t plan systematically and then we like on the spur of the moment and ad hoc measures then we release this amount of money. I mean that is nonsense. So now we’re in a panic mood, monies are being released and thrown here and there,” he said.

President Akufo-Addo in his first address to the nation on March 11 on measures put in place by the government to tackle the novel coronavirus said the Finance Minister had been directed to allocate $100m to combat the pandemic.

Reacting to this, Dr. Amoo said Ghanaian politicians only take action when the country is in an emergency mood and reiterated that all they[politicians] know is to hold conferences and speak big English.

“We’re nowhere near China, they build 1000 beds and not only one, they built about 10 simultaneously within 10 days and that takes practice, they’ve been doing that severally. It’s not COVID time that they started that. They’ve been doing that, that’s why we’re saying if you’ve been practicing in routine time when the emergency comes you will work with style,” he stated.

“But if you’ve not been practicing, hiding around, talking big English, speaking, running around all over the world talking, when the problem comes there’s nothing in your buttocks; nothing. I’m using the words raw, nothing. Only raw foolish English…We like child play, children leaders running around,” he added.

Ghana’s confirmed COVID-19 cases climbed to 21 on March 21.  The country recorded two new cases yesterday with one death, leaving the existing case count to be 20.

Globally, there have been 308,609 cases confirmed with 13,071 deaths and 95,834 persons recovered.
