The viral image received mixed reactions and a lot of commentaries to the effect that the president was not showing exemplary leadership.
The information Minister, Hon. Kojo Oppong Nkrumah has tweeted on the said photo. According to the minister, the campaign did not emanate from the government.
He added that they have instructed city authorities to pull it down. He said private individuals willing to join the COVID19 campaign should consult the government to avoid such mishaps.
