A video of President Akufo-Addo carrying out an official assignment in Niamey, Niger, has popped up after reports that he had been rushed to Nyaho Hospital in Accra.
As seen in the video, there is no truth in the hospital reports, as by the time that report was made, the president was not even in Ghana.
As of Friday, November 8, 2019, the president was in Niger to participate in the ECOWAS Extraordinary Session on Guinea Bissau.
He was captured getting off his presidential jet and being welcomed by an entourage in Niamey.
The video has brought a sort of comfort to some Ghanaians who have reacted with happiness.
Nana, for instance, wrote that the president would live long:
Frank said the president looks fit and strong:
Jonathan also prayed that the president will live long:
Kwaku wondered why someone would wish the president falls sick:
Victor was thankful to God after seeing the video:
Meanwhile, the presidential spokesperson, Eugene Arhin, had earlier dispelled the hospital rumours.
The news had gone viral that the president had been rushed to the hospital with Ghanaians being called on to pray for him.
But as seen in this video, the president is not in a hospital but rather, outside Ghana on an official assignment.
