Newly appointed Deputy Minister-designate for Health, Dr. Bernard Okoe Boye has said that if Ghana will win the war against COVID-19, it will take collaborative efforts of a team rather than an individual.

According to him, though he believes President Akufo-Addo appointed him at this critical time to bring his knowledge and expertise on board the COVID-19 team, he is convinced that he is only going to play a role in the work that has already unfolded.

His comments come after President Akufo-Addo in a Ministerial reshuffle announced that the Ledzokuku Krowor Member of Parliament is now the Minister-designate for health, taking over from Mr. Alexander Kodwo Kom Abban.

Responding to a question posed by Citi TV’s Bernard Avle, on the possibility that President Akufo-Addo appointed him at this critical time to help in Ghana’s fight, Dr. Benard Okoe Boye replied in affirmation.

“I believe so, what I can say is that it will take a team to win the war so more or less I’m going to play a role in the team in their work that is already unfolding,” he noted.

Before his appointment, Dr. Bernard Okoe-Boye was the Board Chairman of the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital and holds a Masters Degree in Public Health (MPH) from Hamburg School of Applied Science and an A1 certificate in German from the Geothe Institute, Accra.

He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Human Biology, Medicine and Surgery from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST).
