Former President John Dramani Mahama has called for a collaborative effort to combat the novel Coronavirus that has hit the country.
The National Democratic Congress (NDC) flagbearer said he is personally ready to share his experience with government to help tackle the spread of the disease.
In a Twitter post, Mahama called for a united front, insisting the Coronavirus is no respecter of person or political parties.
”I will continue to extend a helping hand to the government and share our experience in managing the Ebola crises,” the ex-President wrote.
“I do so with an open and willing heart. And I hope that the gesture will be received in the sincerity it was offered. The enemy before us is no respecter of person or party. We are all in this together.”
For all people of faith, this is a time to show charity & compassion. I urge you to reflect on your beliefs. Don’t engage in practices that will escalate the present anxieties in the nation. Px hikes & other such practices are beneath the dignity of the moment. #StopTheSpread pic.twitter.com/PNqU7jwa9G
