The General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketia, has been criticized for doubting the genuineness of President Akufo-Addo’s measures in fighting the pandemic coronavirus.
General Mosquito as he is popularly called, reportedly said the real intention of President Akufo-Addo’s ban on public gatherings is to rig the 2020 elections.
“is whole announcement of emergency ban, emergency here, stopping this gathering, stopping that gathering, in my view, on the surface, it will appear to the world that the president is acting to deal with the COVID-19 and so on…But the real intention is not to deal with COVID-19 at all. The real intention is to find space to put the pieces of the rigging equipments together. So that by the time anybody could say jack, the election has been compromised,” he is quoted to have said.
Kwesi Pratt, speaking to this on Friday’s edition of Peace FM morning show, ‘Kokrokoo’ said Asiedu Nketiah’s comment was a bit disturbing.
“I wonder why he made those comments. How can the ruling government rig elections with coronavirus; I don’t understand and it is disturbing,” he intimated.
