And why is the N I A still registering people in the Eastern region, is the government really concern about the welfare of its people in the Eastern region or they are rather Interested in the next elections?
My take on NIA this current administration have proven to be the weakest in terms of allowing state institutions to work without government interface.
I am very sad and disappointed on how the National Identification Authority has turned deaf ears to the Precautionary measures and directives announced by H.E Akufo Addo on Sunday 15-03-2020 in connection with how to curtail the spread and possibly, eradicate the Coronavirus in Ghana.
The President, in his address placed a ban on all public gatherings including closure of Schools, Church activities and Muslim prayer gatherings in order to avoid the rapid spreading of COVID-19.
It is however, surprising to notice that since the president directives, NIA led by Mr. Attafuah is still going on with mass registration of the Ghana Card in the Eastern Region.This was the statement by the director of Public health
Speaking at a media briefing in Accra on Sunday, March 15, 2020, the Director of Public Health at the GHS, Dr Badu Sarkodie, said all those traced had been advised to do self-quarantine.
He explained that the number traced were in relation to the first four confirmed cases, explaining that processes were ongoing to identify all persons who might have come into contact with the confirmed cases.
He said in relation to the first two cases, involving a Ghanaian and a Norwegian, 32 and 107 contacts had been traced respectively.
Dr Sarkodie said with the third and fourth cases, involving a student and a Ghanaian who travelled to Obuasi in the Ashanti Region, a total of 12 and 30 contacts had been traced respectively.
He explained that although Ghana had opted for self-quarantine instead of compulsory state quarantine, the Ghana Health Service with its allied agencies would keep a close eye on.
Now we all know we are at risk but why is he is trying to spread it like wild fire in the Eastern region. Is this what we deserve after voting for Nana Addo and his NPP?
