$100 million Corornavirus Saga: It is difficult to understand how NDC members think – Kwamena Duncan

Central Regional Minister, Kwamena Duncan, has expressed worry over the reasoning capabilities of members of the Opposition National Democratic Congress.

According to him, the mind of an NDC member is always tuned to propagate falsehood even when it is not so because that is what the party stands for. And he sees it is as no surprise when some NDC members started playing with coronavirus which claimed the lives of almost 8,000 people since it short existence. 

His comments was in reaction to an earlier comment made by the communication officer of the NDC, Sammy Gyamfi, who noted that government was untruthful to Ghanaians when the President in his speech stated that the Finance Minister has made available $100 million to assist in the fight against the pandemic.

In a panel discussion on Peace FM’s Kokrokoo Wednesday morning, the vibrant communicator for the NDC said government should bow it head in shame for making claims which is not true because it is believed that when the Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta noted in Parliament yesterday that  the $100 million government promised to provide to help in the coronavirus fight is not ready. 

“Government paying lip service with everything in this country. The government does not have the 100 million dollars but is capable of allowing the Electoral Commission of Ghana go on with it unnecessary voter’s registration exercise, ” he said. 

However, reacting to Sammy Gyamfi’s claim, the Central Regional Minister lamented over how members of the NDC have allowed themselves to be used to propagate lies to the public at a time when the country needs unity and oneness to help fight the deadly disease.

He noted that the Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta under no circumstance said that the $100 million announced by President Akufo-Addo to fight coronavirus is not ready and is really shock as to why members of the National Democratic Congress are found of telling lies even when they themselves are aware they are deceiving the general public.
