Spectators Violated COVID Protocols At Hearts-Olympic Game – Obiri Boahen Defenses Sir John’s Funeral

The Deputy General Secretary of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) Nana Obiri Boahen has mounted a strong defense of the non-adherence to Covid-19 protocols at the funeral ceremony of the late CEO of the Forestry Commission (FC) Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie (Sir John).

According to Nana Obiri Boahen, most of the people in attendance observed all the protocols during the event and if some persons were seen to have violated the protocols, he said, they should be dealt with following the law as individuals, but not to blame the organizers of the funeral.

“The president was there and he observed the COVID-19 protocols, the Vice President was there he observed the protocols, the Chief of Staff was there she observed the protocols, Nana Obiri Boahen was there the next day he observed the protocols. So if an individual fails to observe the COVID-19 protocols the individual must be held answerable.

“John Boadu did, Asiedu Nketia observed the protocols. A lot of NDC activists were there and a lot of them observed the protocols so where do you put the blame on the New Patriotic Party and the government.

“If an individual flouts the protocols they must be held answerable. (On Sunday) Accra Hearts of Oak played Great Olympics. What happened? People trooped in, people broke the gate, why are we not also commenting about that on?”

His comments come after the Ghana Medical Association (GMA) and pressure group, OccupyGhana has asked the security agencies to arrest persons who flouted the protocols during the funeral.

Describing the funeral as a potential super spreader of the deadly viral disease, the GMA said investigations must quickly be launched into the organization and the perpetrators dealt with.
