Information Minister, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah says government will invest its energy and creativity at fighting the Coronavirus pandemic rather than extending the mandate of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

Speaking to the Press on Tuesday, the Information Minister explained that the government does not see any justifiable reason to use the virus as bait to extend their stay in power.

He indicated that instead of wasting precious time on this, it is imperative that they focus their energies on fighting and bringing finality to the fight against COVID-19.

“The government is of the view that instead of contemplating measures that are not envisaged in the Constitution, our best energies, our innovation and creativity should be invested in exploring how a country like ours can have safe and free elections.”
