Communications Officer for the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Sammy Gyamfi, has spoken against the mandatory vaccination directive imposed by the Ghana Health Service (GHS).
The Ghana Health Service (GHS) has revised a travel guideline for international passengers as a result of the new Covid-19 variant, Omicron.
A press release from the Ghana Health Service (GHS) said Ghanaians travelling out or into the country after December 12, 2021, must present evidence of full vaccination.
But according to Sammy Gyamfi, "vaccination must be by choice and not by force".
He added that recommendations for passengers as a consequence of the new COVID-19 variant, Omicron, should not be imposed on citizens and the government should not compel Ghanaians to get vaccinated as a result of the Omicron variant.
In a statement made on his Facebook page, Sammy Gyamfi stated that he is willing to fight the imposition of the Covid-19 vaccination by any means necessary while stressing that his remarks on his Facebook page is his personal view and not on behalf of the entity he speaks for.
He wrote: Vaccination must be by choice and not by force. The imposition of compulsory COVID vaccination requirement on all Ghanaians traveling into and out of Ghana by the Ghana Health Service is reprehensible and an affront to the 1992 Constitution. And some of us are determined to fight this madness through every available legal means no matter the cost or stigma. NB: Kindly note, that this view is entirely mine and not that of any entity that I am a member of or speak for.
