Ghana-India Trade Advisory Chamber has urged political actors to minimize politicking in the Covid-19 era, seek first the well-being of citizens and voters will equally reward them with their votes in crucial 2020 polls.
His call comes at the period politics of Covid-19 is gradually taking center stage with Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia and Former President John Dramani Mahama locking horns over records on crisis management in Ghana. Coronavirus virus has so far infected 3, 091 people with 3030 recoveries and 18 deaths in Ghana, a situation, according to President Akufo-Addo has thrown 2020 national budget out of gear.
Ghana goes to the polls to elect president and MPs December 7, 2020. The NPP is yet to elect its parliamentary candidates which scheduled date has already been postponed without a fixed date due to coronavirus pandemic. But even before the battle line is drawn for the 2020 crucial polls, the NPP and NDC will simply not wait for the exit of Covid-19 but are mounting strong defense for who has a well-vexed hand in managing the Ghanaian economy during crisis.
In his immediate reaction to the development already creating charged political atmosphere, on Thursday 7 April, 2020 in Accra, President of Ghana-India Trade Advisory Chamber, Mr. Dominic Oduro-Antwi told Africa Nakua’s Jerry Akornor that “Our politicians, seek ye first the well-being of the people and voters shall be yours…”.
Meanwhile, GITAC President Dominic Oduro-Antwi has admonished African leaders to catalogue and preach to the world successes chalked in fight against coronavirus pandemic. He told Africa Nakua that ” Africa, learn to sing your own praises, it is in this that the world will join the chorus”.
