Making specific reference to the fifth address by the president on the outbreak, Mr. Anyidoho said the speech contained all the necessary ingredients of the principles of crisis communication.

"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.”
