Aspiring General Secretary of the People’s National Convention (PNC), Atik Mohammed, has kicked against government’s decision to undertake Ebola vaccine trials in Ghana.
He described the decision as a means of risking the lives of Ghanaians which, to him, should not be encouraged.
“Government is donating our poor citizens and finding a way of killing them. Why would our leaders voluntarily offer Ghanaians to be slaughtered just in the name of Ebola vaccines,” he questioned.
The Ebola vaccine which scheduled to be undertaken at Hohoe in the Volta Region is expected to help find a vaccine for the Ebola viral disease (EVD) which infected more than 8,000 people, especially in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea, killing more than 4,000 people.

The Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) has already given its approval. But on Adom FM’s Dwaso Nsem morning show Wednesday, Atik Mohammed said the decision by the FDA is insensitive.
He stated that inasmuch as the virus was not recorded in the country, undertaking the trials will spell doom for the country.
“Donating Ghanaians to the slaughter house, that is what the government is up to. If other countries have refused to test the vaccine in the countries, what shows it is safe.
“Ghana is not ready to slaughter its citizens so with immediate effect, it should be cancelled and taken away,” he insisted.
