"Commend Gov't For Securing 600,000 Doses Of AstraZeneca Vaccines For Ghanaians"- John Kumah (Video)
The Member of Parliament for Ejisu Constituency in the Ashanti Region, Lawyer John Kumah has tasked MPs from the opposition, National Democratic Congress (NDC) to commend the Akufo-Addo government for its efforts at securing 600,000 doses of AstraZeneca vaccines for Ghanaians in the wake of the covid crisis.
According to him, for Ghana to be selected among its peers means the government and its people are doing things the right way.
Speaking on the floor of Parliament, he said "Mr. Speaker, I want to bring to the notice of the house that a country like Australia has been blocked from receiving just 200,000 vaccines of AstraZeneca in Europe by Italy. For Ghana to be selected among its peers to receive 600,000 of these vaccines means that we are doing something right in this country"
He added that the good efforts speak to good governance and management of the covid situation in the country.
Lawyer Kumah said "We must be proud that we have a government that can attract the attention of the world for us to receive assistance as early as possible for our people. Mr. Speaker, as I speak, I am a beneficiary of the 600,000 vaccines that we have in the country and I believe that many of us here and the over 300,000 Ghanaians who have already received these vaccinations and we should be proud and thankful to the President"
Speaking on how digitalization has helped promoted e-justice and e-case management in the country, he said "Technology is helping to improve justice delivery in the country and the era of missing docks which is a phenomenon in most of our courts because the manual filing system is gradually becoming a thing of the past"
Speaking on job creation, he said "The Ghana Jobs and Skills project can be found on page 189 of the NPP manifesto where a facility of $ 200,000,000 was pledged in the manifesto to ensure that we promote jobs and skills training and entrepreneurial support for young people in our country"
Lawyer John Kumah also explained that job creation will lead to the development of competency training base programs with the country's various TVET Institutions.
