The President of the Republic of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo-Addo, subtly nudged off opposition parties, who are always trying to find faults in his leadership fight against the COVID-19. In his ninth address to the nation on 10th May, 2020.
Though he didn’t specify the particular opposition party, but you can realize he was referring to the NDC and John Dramani Mahama. Since they were the ones who always find faults in everything he does, especially, his fight against the pandemic. Ok on our
He said, “I know some political actors will want you to believe that our current numbers represent a failure on the part of Government. Do not begrudge them. They need to make such comments for their political survival. On the contrary, we must be emboldened in the knowledge that the 4,700 persons infected, so farm, with the virus, have been identified, taken out of the population, isolated and are being treated,”
Akufo-Addo noted, “this virus, as we have seen the world over, is no respecter of persons, and has wreaked its havoc on every country on the planet. We can defeat it if we continue to look out for one another, and remain each other’s keeper. We are fighting a common enemy, and it is imperative that we do not allow religious, ethnic or political differences to get in the way of certain victory.”
He continued: “So, we cannot allow a few persons, who wish to use these differences to scuttle our collective fight, to succeed. Over the course of our history as a people, we have had to overcome several trials and tribulations: slavery, imperialism, colonialism, tyranny and dictatorship, and we have overcome them all so that, with the help of the Almighty, we are, today, building a free, independent State, a State that, despite the urgency of the crisis, is governed by democratic institutions, and respect for fundamental human rights, especially freedom of speech.”
He, later on encouraged Ghanaians that, he’s very confident that Ghana will surely overcome this pandemic, as well.
“This, too, shall pass! The Battle is the Lord’s!”
