A communications team member of the largest opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Bernard Anim Piesie, has called on authorities responsible for funds disbursed by government to feed citizens during the 3-week partial lockdown to account for it and reimburse Ghanaians.
When the lockdown was announced by President Akufo-Addo in March, the Gender Ministry announced measures to feed the vulnerable.
The government began to distribute free meals to over 400,000 Ghanaians in locked-down areas.
Some people also had foods like rice, yam in its raw state and it helped to ease the economic hardship that comes with COVID-19.
However, the NDC Communicator on UTV’s ‘Adekye Nsroma’ newspaper discussion segment lamented that, “the amount and quality of cooked foods distributed during the partial lockdown days will not amount to the allocated 40 million Ghana cedis, neither will the uncooked foods shared to citizens will amount to the same money allocated by government, so all we expect from government is to find means of retrieving the balance. Definitely there must be a balance”.
