COVID-19: We Are On A Time Bomb Waiting To Explode - Anim Piesie

A Member of the NDC Communication team, Bernard Anim Piesie has accused the ruling NPP government led by Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo of sending the country into doom by politically strategizing issues around the COVID-19 pandemic for their personal gains.

He said the country would not have seen much death and calamities surrounding the disease had government provided health personnel with enough PPE's, postponed final year exams in view of preventing all level of students from going to school and also stopping the ongoing voters' registration exercise by the Electoral Commission (EC).

"With the nation's COVID-19 status, we are on a time bomb which will soon explode. We are our own problems for refusing to do that which is right." 

"It is worrying that we have a leader who is not one bit concerned about human life, but only interested in winning elections," he said.
