- Deputy Minister Kingsley Aboagye-Gyadu says Vice President Bawumia will return soon
- He says the Vice President is recovering faster than expected
- Government says the Vice President will be back in office as soon as doctors deem it fit
The Deputy Health Minister, Hon. Kingsley Aboagye-Gyadu, has stated that Vice President, Dr. Mahamadu Bawumia, is recovering faster and may be returning to Ghana sooner than envisioned.
According to the Deputy Minister, Vice President Dr. Mahamadu Bawumia's 'recovery' trip to the United Kingdom on Friday will be a lot shorter than government expected.
Speaking to Starr News' Ibrahim Alhassan on Sunday, the deputy minister stated that according to the information he had, the Vice President is recovering a lot faster than government expected.
The news may come as a welcome bit of good news, at least for those who have a little more information concerning what it is the Vice President is actually suffering from.
Since the reports of Dr. Bawumia's departure, government has remained tight-lipped concerning exactly what it is the Vice President is suffering from. However the decision to fly him to the UK has received some criticism from Ghanaians.
Some Ghanaians have expressed that government's decision to send the Vice President abroad shows a clear lack of faith in Ghana's health system, while government officials have said the situation made his departure necessary.
“We saw him on Wednesday. Even Thursday morning some of us saw him and suddenly he was taken ill. I don’t think that even his fiercest enemies would have loved for him to be detained here and pass on, rather than to be flown outside to have a good care and then return safely," said the Deputy Health Minister.
