Prof. Akosa’s allegation was that the government manages the COVID-19 figures and doubts the accuracy of the data after he expresses worry about that. His concerns on the government figures on COVID-19 casts doubts on it. Additionally, Prof. Akosa alleged that before the President made a speech last Sunday the COVID-19 case was published and deleted and was republished minutes after the President had finished with his speech and so he thinks the data was manipulated.

The deputy information Minister discounted the claim of Prof. Agyemang Badu Akosa saying it was untrue and that that he made those allegations without any evidence.

“I am particularly scandalized hearing that a man of the standing of Prof. Akosa will allegedly make those statements. I am scandalized, and to accuse the government of managing the figures without providing any iota of evidence, I think for a man like Prof. Badu Akosa, [his allegations are] quite tarnishing and below the belt. I think that is unfortunate. That point that some figures were momentarily published and deleted, I don’t know where it is coming from,” the Deputy Information Minister said.

“Maybe the good Professor is falling to the fake news that is all over the place. I am sure he is a victim of fake news meaning that he himself has not done any serious and diligent checking. You have to interrogate this with the people who manage the data and validate it but to accuse the government of managing the figure without first of all clearing whatever misunderstanding with the GHS from somebody who has worked extensively in that space is my worry,” he added.
