“The presidency doesn’t generate any figures. We see the figures as you have seen here today. We then use the figures to plan and monitor whatever is going on.”

“There is an implementing agency. So this covid-19 fight is led by the Ghana Health Service, the Teaching Hospitals and the Ministry of Health is the Policy level who is also organizing them and we have a Presidential taskforce.”

“We don’t manipulate any figures at the presidential task force level. We don’t generate any figures.”
