-Reports were made that the Vice President had fallen sick
-He was taken to the hospital for medical attention
-However, he was flown out of the country upon advice from hos doctors
Yesterday, it was reported that Vice President of the Republic of Ghana, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia had taken ill and was sent to the hospital for medical assistance.
However, it was reported that upon advice of the doctors of the Vice President, it was prudent to have him flown out of the country for medical attention, a statement reported to be coming from the seat of government said.
When news broke that the Vice President was not too well, many people were of the view that Ghanaian doctors were more than capable of nursing him back to full health and full operational capacity.
It was however learnt later on that the Vice President had to be airlifted to UK for further medical checks and assistance. He was reported to have been accompanied by his wife and Second Lady Mrs. Samira Bawumia.
However, many readers of YEN.com.gh have expressed their own opinion over the matter.
Some people were of the view that doctors in Ghana should be able to solve the situation without the statesman being flown out of the country.
The issue of the healthcare given to some African Heads of States and other top government officials has been a topical issue across the African continent.
Some social media users, in reacting to the issue quizzed if there was ever going to be a day when an European president was going to be flown into any part of Africa to seek medical attention.
Others too did not consider that part of the argument but went on to wish the Vice President well and also supported him with prayers and well wishes.
After the news broke, it has been gathered that well wishes have come the way of Dr. Bawumia from the opposition National Democratic Congress.
Here are some of the reactions that we received from social media over the report:
