The Eastern Regional Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Jeff Konadu Addo has described the General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketiah as a chronic liar and has advised Ghanaians not to give him a listening ear whenever he speaks.
Speaking on Accra based radio station, Asiedu Nketiah stated emphatically that, upon the return of the president, His Excellency Nana Akuffo Addo from Norway, he should have tested for coronavirus.
According to the NDC General Secretary, one might have even infected others with the virus unknowingly since they didn’t test for it.
Mr. Konadu Addo who was on the same platform with Asiedu Nketiah had a banter attack and categorically stated that, according to health practitioners, it takes up to 14 days for one to show symptoms of the virus.
“Asiedu Nketiah doesn’t have anything to say that’s why he is still holding up to this ‘dead’ issue. It’s been over a month since the president returned from Norway and he hasn’t shown any sign of contracting the disease, making what Asiedu Nketiah is saying groundless”. He said.
In furtherance, Jeff Konadu went on and asserted that, what Asiedu Nketiah needs to do is to pray so this deadly pandemic can be eradicated from the country as it has halted many activities and not to be throwing dust in people’s eye.
“If you can’t praise the government for his enormous effort contributed towards the growth of the country, you don’t have to cause fear and panic in the country for it isn’t healthy. Also, Ghanaians shouldn’t pay attention to Asiedu Nketiah for he is a pathological liar.”
Recounting on why he joined the president’s entourage to Norway, the Regional Secretary revealed that, having spent a couple of years in the country, having his wife and children and knowing the Ghanaian community in Norway he was compelled to follow the entourage to assist the president as he performs a national duty.
“As the time we went to Norway, they hadn’t recorded a single coronavirus case. It was a few weeks after our visit when the disease started spreading in the country. We arrived in Ghana on February 27, 2020. It was on March 3 2020, that Norway started recording their first coronavirus case after a Norwegian doctor returned from Italy after a holiday trip.”
Jeff Konadu then asked Ghanaians to support the government as they try to eliminate coronavirus and also go by the directive given by the president and stay at home as the front line is at the front door.
