President – Nana Akufo Addo and Wife Takes Their Covid-19 Jab [Photos]

The President of the Republic of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo and First Lady Rebecca Akufo-Addo received the first dose of the 600,000 Covid-19 vaccines that arrived in the country on Wednesday.

This was done following the President’s promise on his 24th address to the nation. He promised to take the jab together with his wife on live TV. He also added that he will take the jab at a different hospital and the vice president – Mahamudu Bawumia will also take it from a different facility.

As promised, Nana Addo took his jab today at 37 Military Hospital and the Vice President, together with his wife – Samira Bawumia is set to also take their jabs at the Police Hospital, all in Accra.

This was done to mitigate the growing myth and fallacy about the vaccine. Many Ghanaians believe the vaccine is engineered by the whites to wipe out the African race and reduce the population. Others too believe the vaccine is to intended to collapse the fertility of the men and women in Ghana, thus, reducing the population.  

“I know there are still some who continue to express doubts about the vaccine, others have expressed reservations about its efficacy, with some taking sides with conspiracy theorists who believe the vaccine has been created to wipe out the African race.

This is far from the truth. As your President, I want to assure you that the vaccine is safe” the President said.

Tuesday is for the Asante king – Otumfou Osei Tutu and other chiefs to take their jabs as well. This will encourage the general populace to revert their opinion on the vaccine and think of none other than a drug that fights the novel coronavirus.

Let us entreat all to think positive about the vaccine and take it.

The 600,000 vaccines will be distributed in groups until a sizable amount of Ghanaians take the vaccine.
