“It’s Sad Akufo-Addo’s gov’t sat aloof and allowed COVID-19 to degenerate” – NDC’s Omane Boamah

A former Communications Minister under the erstwhile John Dramni Mahama’s government, Dr. Edward Omane Boamah has bemoaned the fact said government sat aloof and allowed the number of coronavirus cases to rise.

According to him, the government could have avoided the rise in numbers if it had locked down the country by closing the borders to foreign travelers.
