A member of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Communication Team, Adel Umar Ibrahim has charged the ruling New  Patriotic Party (NPP) to acknowledge the contributions of Former President, John Dramani Mahama in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.

Speaking on the GTV Breakfast Show, the NDC communicator argued that the former president’s investment in infrastructure made the fight against the Coronavirus pandemic easier.

“If you have a health insurance card and you swipe it on your jacket, do you get healthcare?” Mr. Umar asked rhetorically.

”Infrastructure cannot be taken away so the NDC decided to invest in infrastructure during our time. So we started  expansion of Ridge hospital, Tamale Teaching hospital, UGMC, Ghana Martime, Dodowa hospital, I can go on and on. All these investment came to support and make the fight against Covid easier”, he boastfully enumerated some developmental projects of the NDC.

He made this statement in response to the President’s 29th State of the Nation Address on Ghana’s enhanced response to the coronavirus pandemic last Sunday, May 28, 2023.

In the address, President Akufo-Addo presented a tall list of bodies that stemmed that fight against the global pandemic

”I thank the Council of State and our traditional leaders, the National and Regional Houses of Chiefs, for their support and help in community sensitization. I thank the political and business leaders; development partnerships, NGOs, civil society; the sports, hospitality, entertainment, creative and tourism industries; our security services – police, military, immigration; teachers, pupils, students, parents, and guardians; I thank the journalists and the entire media.”
