The National Democratic Congress (NDC) says its Flagbearer, John Dramani Mahama, is concerned about the health of Ghanaians and is “not just a critic”.

The Party said Mr Mahama had been very active and instrumental in making recommendations and donating Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to health workers in a bid to help the nation win the fight against the virus.

Member of Parliament (MP) for North Tongu, Mr Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa said this when the NDC COVID-19 Technical Team led by its Chair, Mr Prosper Bani, a former Chief of Staff on behalf of Mr Mahama, presented 40 sets of complete PPE to Keta Municipal Hospital to support the fight against COVID-19.

“The donations nationwide were indications that the former President was not just an armchair critic who is not contributing to the solution,” he noted, adding that, “he could have just decided to be an opposition leader who criticizes when there are shortfalls.”

Mr Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa.

“He chose to be a different Flagbearer especially having been a former President, he had seen it before. He managed the Ebola crisis and knows how difficult it is to oversee a crisis situation that’s why he thought that he would not only offer useful suggestions, some of which have been taken, some have not but beyond the useful suggestions he continues to make, he believes that he must also offer humanitarian support,” Mr Ablakwa said.

Dr Anthoinette Ekuban, the Medical Director, Keta Municipal Hospital, thanked Mr Mahama and the delegation for the presentation.

She also extended her gratitude to other individuals and groups who had earlier supported the Hospital to fight the pandemic, assuring that the donations would be put to good use.
