Minister of Health, Hon Kweku Agyemang Manu has attributed his inability to seek parliamentary approval before signing a deal for the overpriced Sputnik vaccine deal to a case of not thinking properly.

Speaking before the parliamentary committee probing the circumstances under which the vaccine was bought on Monday, July 19, 2021, he stated he was forced to skip the right steps because the situation was dire. The contract with Dubai-based Sheikh Ahmed Dalmook Al Maktoum is said to have cost $64.6 million.

“Madam Chair, I have explained that those were not normal times. And I was seriously in a situation that couldn’t make me think properly the way you think that now I will actually address such a situation,” says Manu. “Honourable Chair, I must be very honest with you, at the time, I have mentioned my frustration was the fact that I seriously made that error, and on hindsight, it won’t happen any longer.”

“Honourable chair, very much so, but my frustrations to try to get the vaccines for us at the heat of our second wave. I relied on the executive instrument 61 that was passed by parliament to hide behind the emergency clauses that had been evoked to try to see if I could do that and come to parliament to inform parliament that this is what I have done. And therefore, I need regularization. I need the approval to cover it because we were in dire need of the vaccine. And I had the onus to try to procure the vaccines to vaccinate Ghanaians to protect our lives.”

The FixTheCountry campaign, which began in May, has garnered massive attention and support since Ghanaian youth took to social media to highlight inadequacies in the country. Although the government responded to the aggrieved youth by outlining initiatives it has implemented, including the Nation Builders’ Corp (NABCO), National Youth Entrepreneurship and Innovation Plan (NEIP) to build the human capital in the country, many still think the government has failed to deliver.
