COVID-19 Politicisation: Minority demand timely advice from clergy


The Minority in Parliament is demanding timely advice from the clergy in the wake of, the clergy criticizing parties on trying to score political points on curbing the spread of the novel coronavirus.  

According to the Minority in Parliament they want to know where the clergy was when the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) was sharing and depleting the nation resources as if it was a party resources.
    
 Mr. Iddrisu called for a clear distinction between party funds and national resources and express worry over the current government distributing national resources as if they were their own property as a party.

 “When you say both parties are playing politics with COVID-19, we in the Minority have not sought to do politics with the disease and we would not do politics with it, like we ask at the press conference now when they say they have allocated thirty-five million dollars and we say it is not adequate do you call that partisan politics?”

He further argued that only two point six million dollars has been released as they have a responsibility of oversight and added that when one is creating a path, he would never know it is not straight.
