Gov't reaction to mudslide in Sierra Leone “Poor, slow, uninspiring” - Minority
He called the government response as “poor, slow and uninspiring” at an outreach programme in Ho.
He accused the government of “feet dragging,” saying it was “unimpressive and inconsistent” with Ghana’s proud history of supporting countries in times of distress.
The Ghana government on Friday sent relief items “estimated at over one million dollars” to Sierra Leone.
The announcement, contained in statement signed by the Information Minister, Mustapha Hamid, also urged Ghanaians to support Sierra Leone with clothing and other items.
But Okudzeto slammed the appeal, saying the government should have sent the relief items first before appealing for support from Ghanaians.
He said by now, a contingent of the Ghana Armed Forces should have been sent on a rescue mission.
He said the government’s massage on the disaster which has claimed over 400 lives “offered no hope.”
