Minister in charge of Information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah who doubles as the Member of Parliament Ofoase-Ayirebi constituency has declined the temptation to shift his focus from the current pandemic to politics.
When contacted by Kwame Sefa Kayi’s “Kokrokoo” show for a reaction to former President John Mahama’s claim of the economy in the Intensive care unit (ICU), he had a different opinion.
He observed, “in order not to lose focus on the fight against the global pandemic, the Akufo-Addo administration will only accept the NDC flagbearer’s invitation to a political banter after they have successfully dealt with COVID-19”.
“The comments by the former President about a resilient economy which couldn’t stand the test of COVID-19 is a very tempting attempt to get us into politics but like I have said, we decline the invitation to get into politics. If you listened to the President’s speech yesterday, he said we should hold on to the politics at this critical stage of our battle. We will have time for politics but right now, we will lose focus on the key issues of the fight if we introduce politics. He has said what he wants to say but we won’t respond. This is a global crisis and we have done our best to contain it,” he added.
