- Nii Namoale Amasah is alleging that President Akufo-Addo 'shocked' Bawumia into sickness
- The Former MP says Nana Addo announcing his second term bid raised Bawumia's blood pressure
Former La Dadekotopon Member of Parliament, Nii Amasah Namoale, is blaming President Akufo-Addo for Dr Bawumia’s sudden illness.
According to Namoale, the Vice President suffered a serious shock of his life as soon as Nana Addo announced his intention to contest the 2020 elections.
Speaking on Accra-based Home TV, the former NDC MP insisted that he suspects that Dr Bawumia suffered high blood pressure after Akufo-Addo made the announcement.
“There was a meeting at the Flagstaff House and President Akufo-Addo said he wanted to attend the investiture of George Weah in Liberia so that when he is being sworn into office during his second term, he will also extend the same gesture by gracing his investiture. Bawumia suffered a shock instantly after his blood pressure,” the former MP alleged.
The former NDC lawmaker speculated that there are medical doctors standing by Dr Bawumia's bed 24/7 in the United Kingdom ready to stabilize his condition as and when.

The top NDC man in his interaction was outraged that the Vice President was not sent to Akosombo or Walewale, where there are presidential lodges for him to rest but the NPP decided to waste resources by flying him to the UK.
“If the NPP had commissioned the Legon Hospital, they would have been no need to take him to UK. You detain him at Ridge or Korle-Bu hospital and restrict people from visiting him except his wife,” he said.
Nii Amasah accused the government of wasting the taxpayers’ money and state resources by flying Dr Bawumia on a jet to the UK to treat him of a common high BP that can be dealt with in Ghana.
“Just because of the wanton dissipation of the taxpayer’s money, the NPP decided to charter a flight to UK not because he was thinking about GDP but because of the shock Akufo-Addo gave him," Namoale said.
