Ranking Member on the Transport Committee of Parliament and MP for Adaklu Constituency Kwame Governs Agbodza has accused the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) government of using the Covid-19 tests at the Kotoka International Airport to make money.

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) likened the company undertaking the Covid-19 tests to the controversial Agyapa Royalties Limited, whose Initial Public Offering (IPO) launch has been suspended as the Office of the Special Prosecutor conducts corruption risk probe into the deal.

Speaking on TV3 Newday on Monday, October 19, the MP for Adaklu said “the NPP is seeing Covid-19 as a cash bonanza”.

He expressed worry about the level of non-compliance with Covid-9 protocols on wearing of masks despite a decline in Ghana’s active case count.
