Yesterday, former President of the Republic and leader of the opposition National Democratic Congress, John Dramani Mahama caused massive stir online after he showered praises on the World Health Organisation for approving Malaria vaccines after clinical trials. Mahama's message received the attention of the general public who also joined him to laud WHO over their achievements.
Today, October 8, 2021, the Director of the State Transport Corporation (STC), Nana Akomeah and NDC Member of Parliament for North Tongu constituency, Honourable Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa were interviewed by host Dr. Randy Abbey on Good Morning Ghana show. It was a heated discussion as Randy Abbey questioned Nana Akomeah on his opinion on Mahama's comment about the malaria vaccines.
Reacting to the comment, Nana Akomeah openly praised the WHO for finally approving the vaccines. He indicated that Malaria has become one of the dangerous diseases that have claimed million of innocent lives. For this reason, he stated that the vaccines would help to reduce the number of admissions at hospitals.
Speaking further, the pressure from Okudzeto Ablakwa and Randy Abbey forced him to eulogise Mr. Mahama's exceptional leadership in commending the World Health Organisation. According to Nana, Mahama's name will go down as one of Ghana's best performing Presidents, but Ghanaians are anticipating for his exit from the political scene.
He said, "Personally, I was happy when WHO announced the approval of the vaccines. I have witnessed many lives claimed by malaria. The world will have enough peace henceforth because of the vaccines."
He added, "Mahama is a good leader without doubt but it did not reflect in the elections. What he did was excellent and it is worth praising. For Ghanaians, they see him differently because they saw what he did when he was President. I am forced to praise him."
