Member of Parliament for the North Tongu Constituency, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has said it is possible for Africa to be the continent that finds a cure to the Novel Coronavirus.
According to him, Africa as projected by Dr. Kwame Nkrumah is confident, capable, courageous and visionary and that it cannot be underestimated at a time the world is battling a pandemic.
Mr. Ablakwa in a Facebook post on AU Day May 25 said ”May the African Personality which the Osagyefo Kwame Nkrumah put forth as that confident, capable, courageous and visionary African be rekindled, particularly, at this most challenging time. A belief that an African treatment and an African vaccine for COVID-19 is possible.”
He opined that he believes an ”African economic transformation far beyond a mere post COVID-19 recovery anchored on the full realisation of the African Continental Free Trade Agreement and AU Agenda 2063 is possible.”
He added that he believes in ”A new Africa of concrete opportunities for the youth which shall end decades of perilous migration in search of perceived greener pastures is possible.
According to Mr. Ablakwa, the African most desired is possible with selfless leadership, genuine commitment and true love for all.
