“Good speech; as someone who used to write President Atta-Mills’ speeches, I would have written a similar speech because it has all the necessary ingredients of the principles of Crisis Communication.”
Mr. Anyidoho admonished Ghanaians to rally behind president Akufo-Addo in fighting the deadly virus since it has no political colour.
