Government has been advised to immediately instruct the National Disaster Management Organisation (NADMO) and the committees headed by the clergies, to stop the distribution of both cooked and uncooked food to the vulnerable in the country to help prevent the spread of covid-19.
The Advocates for Truth and Justice, (ATJ), a civil society group, disclosed that NADMO has violated the directive of President Akuffo Addo in its distribution of the food to the beneficiaries.
A statement issued in Kumasi and jointly signed by Mr Agyemang Duah lsaac, and Mr Daniel Agyekum, Public Relations Officer and Secretary respectively, said the organisation has failed to ensure social distancing in the queues of the beneficiaries,
Failure to do so, the statement said, the organisation will facilitate communal spread of coronavirus in the country.
The statement lauded government’s effort towards assisting the poor with food during the lockdown which aims at preventing the spread of the disease.
The group has also noticed with Keen interest the strategy being used by NADMO to share the food, saying the Assembly and the unit committee members of the various MMDAs should not be left out so as to identify and locate the real vulnerable persons.
