The General Secretary of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), John Boadu, has given the ruling government a high mark for various measures put in place to curb the novel covid-19 pandemic.
The government of Ghana as part of efforts to fight the coronavirus put in place some measures including mandatory quarantine for overseas travellers, ban on public gatherings and a partial lockdown of Greater Accra, Kasoa and Greater Kumasi.
Speaking to this in an interaction on Neat FM, John Boadu believes the ruling government needs commendation because had those measures not been put in place, Ghana’s story would have been bad.
“In terms of rating, I would give government 120 percent,” he averred.
