Pressure group, Concerned Voters Movement (CVM), has alleged that the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) Covid-19 team recently refused to give food it was distributing for free to a 60-year-old woman said to be anti-NDC.
According to the group, the incident happened in the Ashaiman Constituency, and gave the name of the woman as Madam Ama Nimoh.
In a statement signed by Razak Kojo Opoku, Founder and President of the CVM and issued on Tuesday, the group condemned “the NDC Covid-19 team for sharing food discriminately and on political and tribal lines.”
According to the CVM statement, former President John Mahama presented some food items to the NDC Covid-19 team for onward distribution to the vulnerable in the lockdown areas.
It said the Covid-19 team decided to distribute the canned and packaged foodstuffs on tribal and party lines as some households within the lockdown areas suspecting to be against NDC and Mr Mahama were completely ignored.
The CVM, in the statement, expressed worry about situation and said “if not for political gains, the NDC Covid-19 team should have partnered the Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection and the Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development in the distribution of the foodstuffs to the vulnerable and deprived communities under the lockdown areas.”
