The MP for North Tongu, Okudzeto Ablakwa has stated that aside the ongoing COVID-19 vaccination, another vaccination needs to be carried out.
According to him, the country also needs a vaccine for the 'corrupt' Akufo-Addo-led government.
He is of the view that the corruption canker witnessed under President Akufo-Addo is unmatched to any in the history of Ghana.
Ablakwa made the claims when he contributed to the debate of the state of the nation address in Parliament on Thursday, March 11, 2021.
“As I conclude, Mr. Speaker in this era of COVID-19 vaccination, the Akufo-Addo government needs an urgent and immediate vaccination against corruption,” he said.
He mentioned that the forced retirement of the former Auditor General, Daniel Yao Domelevo, is behind his call for the Akufo-Addo-led government to be vaccinated.
Ablakwa said the Akufo-Addo administration is rather going after those who have decided to fight corruption.
“The corruption that has engulfed the Akufo-Addo government apart from the COVID-19 vaccine, the other vaccine we need so urgently and now is the corruption vaccine,” he added.
In other news, the recently retired Auditor General Daniel Yao Domelevo despite the bad blood that existed between himself and the seating government has praised Akufo-Addo.
According to him, in 2016 when he was hesitant to take up the role he filled up until his retirement, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo called him on phone to encourage him to accept the appointment.
He made this known while speaking at a thanksgiving service held at the Christ the King Catholic Church at Cantonments on Wednesday, March 10, 2021.
