General Secretary of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), John Boadu, believes that Ghana would have recorded a higher rate of confirmed cases of the novel Coronavirus, similar to what is happening in European countries if the National Democratic Congress (NDC) was to be in power.
He explained that the opposition NDC, under John Dramani Mahama, would have worsened the situation for the country because they shared the same belief as other European countries that went in for their citizens in China at the beginning of the pandemic.
Speaking on Okay FM’s Ade Akye Abia Morning Show, Mr. Boadu asserted that the NDC strongly entreated the Akufo-Addo government at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, to evacuate Ghanaian students stranded in the Wuhan Province in China, and even went further to create a hashtag on social media.
“Those countries like Iran, the UK, Italy, Spain, and the USA that reasoned like the NDC and brought their citizens back from China, have you seen their situation today? The number of COVID-19 cases would have skyrocketed and spiraled out of control just as its happening in those countries if NDC under Mahama was in power,” he asserted.
