Prof. Alex Dodoo of the School of Medicine and Dentistry of the University of Ghana has been summoned before the Privileges Committee of Parliament for questioning over his alleged contemptuous comments on the Ebola vaccine trial in Hohoe.

The Speaker of Parliament Edward Doe Adjaho, Majority leader Alban Bagbin, the Manhyia MP Matthew Opoku Prempeh and other members of the House harshly criticized the respected Professor for making comments thought to be contemptuous of Parliament.

Prof. Dodoo last week asked Parliament to apologise to Ghanaians for their “incorrect, misleading and unfounded” comments on the Ebola vaccines trial.

He also said the Health Minister’s directive for the trial to be put on hold was “regrettable”.

 The Professor was quoted as saying, “It is wrong on the path of the Minister to suspend the trials since the FDA is the agency mandated by law to give approval for clinical trials” adding that the decision undermines the independence and integrity of the FDA, which is a respected African national regulatory authority.”

“The current brouhaha about the vaccine trials is a dent on the integrity and the professionalism of the several world renowned professionals in the country who have been providing technical assistance to countries all over the world including some developed countries.”
