- Vice president, Dr Bawumia is in the UK for medical treatment
- Information Minister claims his transfer to the UK is to aid him to have uninterrupted time to recover
Minister of information, Mustapha Hamid, has revealed that the main reason behind transferring the vice president to the United Kingdom (UK) for medical attention was to prevent family and friends besieging his hospital bed with well-wishes.
According to the minister, this move is to ensure that the vice president gets uninterrupted rest while seeking treatment.
“When he is in Ghana, people will come from his village, from Walewale [and] wherever he is [and] the people will besiege [his residence]. Normally, when you are out of reach you will have the peace to heal,” the minister revealed.
So far, the cause of illness remains unknown but a deputy health minister, Kingsley Aboagye-Gyadu, reveals the vice president is recovering faster than expected and he could be discharged very soon.
