The Bono Regional Deputy Chief Imam, Alhaji Baaba Seidu is advocating for Muslims in the Region to dispute the various conspiracy theories and avail themselves to be vaccinated when the time arrives.
This comes after the C.E.O for Zongo Development Fund; Alhaji Arafat Suleiman Abdullah has said that their statistics show that the Zongo people are not taking the covid-19 vaccines.
According to him, is a result of the conspiracy theories going around in the public domain.
Speaking to the media when he visited Zongo Chiefs in Kumasi, he entreated the Zongo community people to ignore those ill talks and go avail themselves for the vaccination exercise.
But according to Alhaji Baaba Seidu, just like any other drug has its own side effect, so the vaccine is and thus, has nothing to do with the conspiracy theories surrounding it.
“Even Chroloquine has its side effect and does not apply to everyone, some take it and react and others do and they are fine, so drugs side effect is real and varies on individual bases”, he stressed.
Alhaji is however urging his subjects and the Islamic leadership to take up the task of educating the community on the need to avail themselves to be vaccinated.
He said the Islamic doctrine does not go against the COVID-19 vaccination exercise as been speculated.
