Prof. Alex Dodoo of the School of Medicine and Dentistry of the University of Ghana has apologised to Members of Parliament for describing them as "ignorant".

Counsel for the scientist, Yonny Kulendi, who spoke on behalf of Professor Dodoo told Parliament’s privileges committee Tuesday that they "unconditionally" and "irrevocably" apologise for the comments if the House feels slighted or insulted by the Professor’s comments.

Prof. Dodoo in an interview with the media 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.”

Yonny Kulendi said his client, Prof. Dodoo had given him instructions to issue his unconditional and irrevocable apology to the house.
