The Communications Director for National Disaster Management Organisation (NADMO) George Ayisi says he is yet to come across any of the videos of Ghanaians in lockdown areas scrambling for food being distributed by NADMO.
According to him, he has however been informed of the videos which are replete on various social media platforms.
” I’m yet to see the video of masses receiving food. NADMO officials have however been instructed to go by the social distance protocols.
“The thing is before we go there the crowd is gathered and they think the food is going to get finished but we have enough,” he told Francis Abban on Morning Starr Monday.
Some Ghanaians have taken to social media to express concerns over the manner in which government is distributing food to the vulnerable in the lockdown areas. Videos on social media have shown crowds gather in queues for food and other items.
The Coalition of NGOs in Health has appealed to government to make use of the social workers in its social intervention provisions in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic in Ghana.
According to the chairman of the coalition, Gabriel Banaku, social workers will have better ways of managing social interventions and will not allow crowds to gather in the distribution of food.
