Former President John Dramani Mahama says he will support measures and actions being taken by government to fight the spread of COVID-19 virus in Ghana.

Ghana recorded another case of the deadly coronavirus as of March 17, 2020, bringing the total number of confirmed cases in the country to seven.

Pledging his support in a Facebook post, on Wednesday, March 18, the former President said: “We will be supportive of the measures and actions being taken by government, while remaining vigilant in ensuring that the public is adequately protected.”

The leader and flagbearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress also said: “I give my word to the people of Ghana that as the Minority and voice of the voiceless, we will hold the government to account.”

“This is not a time for words. It is a time for action,” he added.

Ghana set aside the cedi equivalent of $100 million to enhance its preparedness and response plans against the spread of coronavirus.

The President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo in a televised nation address ordered the shutdown of all schools and universities indefinably as government moves to stop the spread of the coronavirus.

“All public gatherings including conferences, workshops, funerals, festivals, political rallies, sporting events and religious programmes such as services in churches and mosques have also been suspended for four weeks,” he said.

The President also described the broad acceptance of measures to combat the spread of the Coronavirus pandemic in Ghana as encouraging.
