Ghana to receive more COVID-19 vaccines from Johnson & Johnson in August

Ghana to receive more COVID-19 vaccines from Johnson & Johnson in August

Ghana to receive more COVID-19 vaccines from Johnson & Johnson in August

The Health Minister Hon. Kwaku Agyeman-Manu, has announced that government will receive the first batch of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines in August this year from the Africa Medicines Platform.

The Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) has already approved this vaccine for use in Ghana.

Addressing the media in Accra on Wednesday 16 June, Hon. Agyeman-Manu said the exact date for the arrival of the vaccines is not yet confirmed.

“We have indications that our first batch of vaccines to come from the AU supported procurement will begin to arrive in this country sometime in August. We are still waiting for the exact date,” he said.

Agyeman-Manu also revealed that government would in the middle of July receive more doses of the AstraZeneca vaccines from the UK and USA.

“The government is also making frantic efforts to procure more vaccines to complete the second jabs for those who have not received them, and to continue the mass vaccination of the 20 million people targeted. So, there is hope for those who have not received their jabs. Be assured,” the health minister said.

The President’s call for Ghana to produce its own vaccines

Meanwhile, the President, Nana Akufo-Addo, has said his administration is keen on supporting industry players to develop COVID-19 vaccines locally, as part of efforts to vaccinate the entire adult population in Ghana.

Ghana recorded its first COVID-19 infection in March 2020 after the novel coronavirus was first detected in the Chinese city of Wuhan in December 2019.

Launching Ghana’s financing road map for the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in Accra, the first of such road map to be produced in Africa, Akufo-Addo said recent scramble for vaccines by African countries to fight the COVID-19 pandemic is a clear indication that the continent and for that matter Ghana, must take the bull by the horn and produce its own vaccines.

COVID-19 vaccine reality

Akufo-Addo said Ghana has “so far through the Covax facility”, received some “one million, two hundred doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine which has enabled us to vaccinate completely some 350,000 people and some 850,000 have received their first dose.”

“Unfortunately, we are the victims of this worldwide shortage of vaccines especially the poorer, less advantaged nations. It has provided us a very important lesson, among the many lessons that the COVID-19 has revealed to us, the need for self reliance in future in these areas” President Akufo-Addo stated.

“We cannot continue to be dependent on alms and on charity of foreigners and foreign tax payers for our basic sustainability. We need to be able to put in place the structures that will enable us in the future not to be caught with our pants down and that is we have to learn and find the avenue to produce our own vaccines and I am particularly keen on providing the assistance for the institutions of our country to do so,” Akufo-Addo added.

Why Ghana needs a new presidential jet : a look at Presidential jets of neighboring African countries

Why Ghana needs a new presidential jet: As the debate to procure a new and bigger presidential jet for the President of the Republic of Ghana continues, we are privileged to see the Presidential jets of our neighboring countries who are attending the ECOWAS 59th ordinary session in Accra.

A look from the Kotoka International Airport has revealed the various Presidential jets from other neighboring ECOWAS leaders who are attending the session.

The Presidential Jet of the Nigerian President

The luxurious aircraft used by President Muhammadu Buhari, the president of Nigeria, to travel to Ghana to attend the ECOWAS meeting is Boeing Business Jet (BBJ) 737.

This luxurious jet has a seating capacity of between 25 and 50 passengers with a master bedroom, a bathroom with showers, a conference/dining area and a living room, along with state-of-the-art security equipment for the safety of the president.

The aircraft is nicknamed “Eagle One” and is marked NAF-001. The BBJ 737 is believed to cost between US$90 million and US$150 million. There is no doubt that the Nigerian government could afford this luxurious jet looking at the countries GDP which is one of the highest in Africa.

Aside this jet, the government of Nigeria also have another jet Gulfstream V-SP in its fleet of aircrafts which is mostly used by the foreign affairs minister for international travels.

Presidential Jet of Cote D’Ivoire

President Alassane Ouattara of Côte d’Ivoire, Ghana’s neighboring state to the west, arrived in Ghana in the Ivorian presidential jet, an Airbus 319.

The Airbus 319 is a member of the Airbus A320 family of short-to-medium-range, narrow-body, commercial passenger twin-engine jet airliners manufactured by Airbus.

The Airbus 319 is capable of carrying between 124 and 146 passengers.

The Nigérien president, Mohamed Bazoum, travelled to Ghana in a Boeing 737-700. 

This luxurious jet is worth USD 40 million and according to the Boeing website, the airline provides its users with superior reliability, fuel efficiency and high-value returns. 

Although with a population of nearly 18 million, and about 60% of the populates living below the poverty line, the government of Niger saw the need to procure this expensive aircraft.

The jet can carry at least 126 and at most 149 passengers.

Looking at these countries who are not too far from Ghana and the kind of jets they own for presidential assignments, Ghana should indeed be at the critical point of decision making in procuring a new jet for the president.  Do you think Ghana should a new presidential jet?
