The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has wished Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia well and speedy recovery.
The NDC posted on its official Twitter handle on Saturday “speedy recovery to Vice President Mahamadou Bawumia who has been medically evacuated to London for treatment”.
Ghana’s vice president on Friday was taken ill and kept under the watch of his doctors. He was later flown to London for further treatment.
According to a statement from the presidency signed by Chief of Staff, Akosua Frema Osei-Opare, the trip became necessary following the advice of Dr. Bawumia’s doctors.
“The Vice President of the Republic, Alhaji Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, on Friday, 19th January, 2018, left Ghana for the United Kingdom for medical leave, on advice of his doctors. He was accompanied by the 2nd Lady, Hajia Samira Bawumia,” a statement said.
It is unclear when Dr Bawumia will be cleared to return to Ghana.
