Depoliticization Is Another Way To Fight Covid-19 – Chief Akilu Sayibu


The Managing Director of the Voiceless Consult, Chief Akilu Sayibu, has indicated that aside staying home, washing of hands, social distancing and the use of hand sanitizers, depolitization is another way to defeat the covid-19 pandemic.


Speaking on Tamale based Zaa Radio recently, Chief Akilu Sayibu explained that death has no political colour and no one has a spare life. He therefore urged Ghanaians to abide by the various interventions that the government is implementing to contain and curb the spread of the Novel coronavirus and throw politicisation away in this difficult times.

Chief Akilu Sayibu also used the opportunity to appeal to Civil Society groups and members of the general public who can donate PPEs to the Security Agencies, Health Workers and the media to do so to complement the efforts of government.

Chief Akilu Sayibu, who is also the Managing Editor of the Voiceless Media, disclosed that his media organisation was using 80%, of its space for Covid-19 news coverage and also educating the general public on the virus and urged other media houses to do same as their way of contributing to the fight against the pandemic.

Ghana currently has 378 cases of the covid-19 and the government has, in the last two weeks, introduced partial lockdown in some parts of the country as a way of preventing the spread of the virus.

President Nana Akufo Addo also announced some measures to cushion Ghanaians in the face of the pandemic; Ghanaians are to enjoy free water for three months effective April and also free electricity in various forms. Frontline workers in the fight against the covid-19 in the country are also to receive some incentives.
