Akwasi Addai Odike who is the founder and leader of United Progressive Party (UPP) has sent words to President Akufo Addo to lockdown the country as soon as possible to prevent the spread of the COVID-19.
Don’t forget, Prez Akufo during his last address to the Nation confirmed that there is a rise in the number of positive cases and as such government might be forced to impose tougher sanctions if the cases continue to increase.
According to the President, the possibility of lockdown is still on the table and that would depend on how Ghanaians would observe the protocols.
But the founder of UPP in his response called out the President urging him to protect the lives of the citizens by locking down the country for at least a week.
“Locking down the country is the only option and has become necessary to help control Covid19 virus. Positive cases of COVID-19 keep increasing and we cannot take the lives of Ghanaians for granted” Odike explained.
“Yes I know people will say the majority of Ghanaians cannot survive another lockdown but it is better to be starved than to lose your life through Covid-19”.
He added, “Ghanaians are flouting the COVID-19 protocols while others do not believe that Covid-19 virus is in Ghana because President Akufo-Addo himself who makes the laws flouted the laws”.
“I was shocked when I heard government officials and Ghana Health Service blaming Ghanaians over the increase of COVID-19 cases but are afraid to blame we the Politicians especially President Akufo-Addo himself”.
