  He explained that his a politician with the background in media and his message may be well received but a lot credence will be given somebody in the health sector.

‘When I came home on a visit one of the outrageously rediculous I have heard was that  this virus will not or can’t affect a Dagomba man simply because it’s believed that Dagombas have some form of immunization through drinking of herbs  against such viruses but we know that it knowns no color, ass or cred or boundaries ‘.
