Former Deputy General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Koku Anyidoho, has responded to the $150 price for the Covid-19 test at the Kotoka International Airport (KIA).
Mr, Ayidoho had always condemned the fee until he travelled to Guinea and missed his flight because of the delay of the covid-19 test, a circumstance he described as very uncomfortable.
His statement follows immense backlash and the thereafter presentation of a petition by a cross-section of Ghanaians to the government to reconsider the amount.
But, responding to the development on his twitter page, the Founder of the Atta Mills Institute, admitted though the $150 is still steep it can produce COVID results in less than 30 minutes.
He wrote: Honestly, I was a critic of the $150 COVID test @ KIA till I travelled to Guinea; missed flights bcos COVID test results over there took days to be completed. $150 is high but if it can produce COVID results in less than 30 minutes; the time value of money becomes key.
