Managing Editor of the Insight newspaper who was speaking on Peace FM's morning show 'Kokrokoo', has said it is not easy to be a Head of State of any country especially in an era where the world is battling the coronavirus pandemic.
According to him, it will be an act of wickedness not to feel sympathy for President Akufo-Addo, most especially in light of all the challenges confronting the economy.
"I feel pity for the President (Akufo-Addo) . . ." Kwesi Pratt Jnr stated.
"In this current dispensation; every President should be pitied . . . in Ghana anyone who doesn't sympathize with the President in this current state is wicked . . . In the first place, the economy is not doing so well and to carry this burden as President of Ghana; it is huge and so I feel pity for the President," he averred.
Number of Testing
Touching on the country's fight against COVID-19 relative to frontline workers at health facilities, Kwesi Pratt asked authorities to up their game in the number of tests being conducted.
According to him, other countries are doing well with testing so there is a need to do more.
As at Sunday 31st May, 218, 425 tests have been conducted, according to the Ghana Health Service.
Restrictions eased, gatherings should not be more than 100 people
President Akufo-Addo, over the weekend, introduced a phased approach of easing of restrictions especially in public gatherings and school attendance.
In his 10th address to the nation on measures being taken against the spread of COVID-19, he said effective 5th June, churches and mosques can start meeting with a maximum congregation of 100 and the mandatory wearing of nose mask.
"In addition to mandatory wearing of masks, a register of names and contact details of all worshippers must be provided; maximum duration of one hour per service," he said.
