Prof Kwamena Ahwoi has chastised Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia for politicizing the novel Coronavirus pandemic and comparing it to the dumsor crisis.
According to him, the vice president in his recent comments made a terrible political judgement in comparing the two crises which had befallen the country.
Prof Ahwoi said, “We are in the middle of a crisis. We don’t know how it is going [to] end. Yet, you are comparing it with a crisis that was managed and resolved more than four years ago.”
He added, “Besides, how do you compare a crisis whose cost is calculated in loss of human lives with a crisis whose cost is calculated in loss of material production?”
Prof Kwamena Ahwoi noted that if the attitude of the vice president does not amount to a politicization of the pandemic, then what does?
