According to him, the time has come for Africa to depend on what to do for itself and the Coronavirus has come to teach us a lesson on the need to strengthen our health and other sectors.

Speaking to this portal, he said people can no longer travel abroad for medical care or check-ups, be it the rich, the politician or the poor hence the need to see the pandemic as a wake-up call to set up a strong health facility.

According to him, it will not take Africa anything to equip its hospitals and make the health sectors strong.

Africa, he said, is blessed with rich resources like gold, diamond, timber, oil and other rich resources which can be used to provide good healthcare.

The Igbo King in Ghana appealed to African leaders to use the Coronavirus as an opportunity to equip its medical facilities and centres adding that; Africa has the best medical doctors all over the world but due to improper health facilities for them to practice has made them move to abroad.

He said the a time has come for Africa to use what it has to improve on the living conditions of its people.

Africa, he said has best brains but needs to bring the best out of its people by way of practicing what we are and what God has giving us.

He express worried over why Africa in time like this are waiting for hand sanitizer, face masks and ventilators to come from Europe, Asia and other parts of the world which can be manufactured in Africa.

He added that how sure are we as Africans that those items are not contaminated by viruses and diseases.

He said Africa has the best function designers and people who can manufacture face masks and sanitizers but due to financial constraints, they are unable to manufacture those products.
