The flagbearer for the largest Opposition Party National Democratic Congress John Dramani Mahama has donated PPEs to Cape Cost Teaching Hospital to fight the Coronavirus (COVID-19).
The items presented were 50 PPE’s and 50 boots.
Donating the items on behalf of the flagbearer, the Central Regional NDC party Executives led by the Cape Coast South Member of Parliament Hon. Kweku Ricket Hegan said Mr Mahama was not able to donate it himself due to the lockdown rules.
“The Party wants to support what his Excellency Nana Akuffo Addo is doing to fight the virus and due to that as a responsible party, we will not sit down for the president to do it alone. The Pandemic is not politics so we should stop politicising it and fight it together. Ghanaians are even lucky because comparing the incidents to other countries in terms of cases recorded we are far better than them. We are happy the president has taken the NDC’s advise to fight the COVID. John Dramani Mahama will use his experience in fighting the Ebola to help the president to fight the COVID 19.”
Among the team that did the donations were the NDC Central Regional party chairman Lawyer E.K.T Addo, the NDC Communication Officer Mr. Kwesi Dawude, aspiring MP for Cape Coast North Dr. Kwamena Mintah Nyarko and the leader Kweku Ricket Hagan MP for Cape Coast South.
The Chief Executive Officer for the Cape Coast Teaching Hospital Mr. Eric Kofi Ngyinua on behalf of the Hospital thanked his Excellency John Dramani Mahama for such a donation.
“This will boost us to work well because we have gotten enough support from the NDC party. We promise to work tirelessly and also ensure that the materials will reach all our treatment centers to fight the COVID in case we encounter some. All the necessary arrangement has been made in the Hospital here to fight the COVID. We wish other political parties will also emulate what the NDC party has done to help combat the COVID 19.”
