Blame govt for presenting Ghana as ‘World’s Poorest People’ in gaining covid-19 vaccines— Sonnie Badu tells Ghanaians
International gospel musician, Sonnie Badu has charged Ghanaians to blame the government for the bad publicist the country is earning from international media after the country received its first batch of 600, 000 coronavirus vaccines.
According to him, the government might have described the country to the international world as the country with poorest people to gain the vaccines.
This follows a giant media outlet, Sky News which in a tweet to announce the arrival of the vaccines in Accra described the entire country and its citizenry as the “world’s poorest people.”
Many have registered their displeasure with the tweet after calling on Sky News to with immediate effect drop the viral tweet.
But Sonnie Badu in his response saw nothing wrong with the tweet.
He, however, asked Ghanaians to express their frustration on their “bad government” and not on the international media.
“Maybe that is how leaders from Ghana presented the situation, to the international donors to enable them to get the corona vaccine free,” he said in response to a ace broadcaster, Abieku Santana’s post to disapprove with Sky News.
Ghana received the first consignment of 600,000 doses of Astra Zeneca corona vaccine on Wednesday at the Kotoka International airport in Accra as part of global efforts to immunise citizens in the country.
Health minister-designate Kwaku Agyeman-Manu was present to receive the vaccines.
Meanwhile, Information Minister designate, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah has explained the COVAX Vaccines were given to support countries with low income earnings.
He said the country is described as the first African country to have received the vaccines due to the fact that Ghana made its all necessary documents ready for the vaccines.
