Contrary to the appointment of Dr. Anarfi Asamoa-Baah by President Akufo-Addo as Presidential Coordinator for the Government’s Coronavirus Response Programme, the team former President Mahama formed for the same function failed to live up to expectation, the Ashanti Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party has shared.
Dr.Asamoa-Baah acts as President Akufo-Addo’s point man for the response effort, and is responsible for pulling together and co-ordinating all aspects of the response programme by Government.
Mr. Bernard Antwi-Boasiako, shamed the 2020 flagbearer for the National Democratic Congress for copying President Akufo-Addo blindly when he didn’t understand the purpose of establishing a Coronavirus Response team.
The NDC, through its 2020 defeated flagbearer claimed to have submitted a proposal of a national action plan on combating the novel coronavirus to the Speaker of Parliament.
Mr. John Mahama indicated that it was evidence of their commitment to assisting the Akufo-Addo led government in the fight against the pandemic.
But Mr. Bernard Antwi-Boasiako popularly known as Chairman Wontumi stated on the Nsempa Fie show that the team Mr. Mahama put together failed to render any account to Ghanaians and little is known of the actual work they did to help the nation.
According to him, Mr. Mahama and his Coronavirus Response team both lacked vision noting that the team shouldn’t have established at all.
