Ghana’s President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo said African countries have to develop the capacity to produce vaccines, while addressing the Fourth Ordinary Session of the Fifth Parliament of the Pan-African Parliament (PAP) on Monday.
He said the COVID-19 has taught Africans to work together to boost the capacity to succeed. Akufo-Addo called for the utilization of the African talent to integrate the continent and improve intra-Africa trade in line with African Continental Free Trade Area.
The African parliamentarians are meeting face-to-face for the first time after 18 months because of the COVID-19 pandemic. They would discuss many issues affecting the African continent and elect PAP new office-bearers.
