The president of the Republic of Ghana, Nana Addo Danquah Akufo Addo has assured all Ghanaians that his government is set to buy the first set of COVID-19 vaccines by the first half of the year which falls in July 2021.
The deadly coronavirus pandemic held the country and its economy to their knees for almost a year now Children have been out of school for close to 9 months since the country recorded its first three cases. Addressing the nation, the president said:
It has not been an easy task, I know. However, we have done so to protect our lives, the lives of our loved ones, and the lives of our heroic health workers who continue to care for those affected by the virus and the sick in general.
With Ghana set to procure her first consignment of the COVID vaccines within the first half of this year, there is light at the end of the tunnel. But, we are not yet out of the woods. So, let us all continue down the path of strict adherence to the protocols.
There is nothing beyond us, the Ghanaian people, who were the first in sub-Saharan Africa to gain our freedom from colonial rule. We can do it.
