The Convention Peoples’ Party (CPP) on Wednesday said 2020 has presented the world with a difficult task of managing the COVID-19 pandemic, especially as the world celebrates Easter and called for attitudinal change to reflect the season.

“We in Ghana realise how this situation has exposed our many inherent weaknesses regarding governance, development, environment, research and above all, attitudes. No matter how grievous the situation, we can still build on Hope of the Easter season,” Hajia Hamdatu Ibrahim, CPP Acting Chairman and Leader, said in a statement to mark Easter.

“In as much as the COVID-19 is a war situation and thus portend the scare of disintegration that is threatening and ravaging all nations, at the same time, it presents us with the opportunity to mobilise ourselves for a positive difference.”

“We are told that His death preceded victory. Something must give way for better things to emerge in our world of nature and its never-changing forces (of nature). Let Ghana give up negativity for positivity”.

Hajia Hamdatu said Easter reminds humanity that Jesus Christ did not only hope but endured the suffering and pain that came along the pursuit of redemption.

“Ghana must work towards a redemptive process by cleansing our thoughts and acts.”

“Love must underpin every step of the leadership of our country towards the reconstruction of Ghana. Dedication to duty and diligence in all matters is needed. Then can the citizenry do more and be able to check leadership in line,” she said.

While wishing members of the Christian faith a Happy Easter in this sombre period, she urged all Ghanaians to remain hopeful and abide by the strict directives in the fight against COVID-19 adding; “We can fight and win this battle too.”

“Ghana, by this Easter, must come out of this pandemic renewed and better poised to fight our battles against poverty, disease, illiteracy, unemployment, corruption, moral decadence and wilful dissipation of resources,” she said.

Hajia Hamdatu urged the people to make a difference in all spheres of life to bring about peace and lasting solution to the pandemic.

“We have fought and won many battles before. This also shall be won and pass. There is a victory for us. May God bless our homeland Ghana and make our nation great and strong”.
