Professor Kwabena Frimpong Boateng has shown that even though he has matchless love for his country as a minister, he equally cannot forget his first love as a heart surgeon.

The astute Ghanaian is currently the Minister for Environment, Science, Technology and Innovation under the Akufo-Addo-led government.

As a result of his position, he sees to the affairs of the nation normally from Monday to Friday which are considered as 'official working days'.

Apart from his political life and work, Professor Kwabena Frimpong-Boateng is an active physician and cardiothoracic surgeon.

As a result, he goes to work on weekends but not in the capacity as a minister but in the full role as a heart surgeon.

During such weekends, the experienced surgeon goes to the theatre to save lives by performing hours of surgeries while standing on his feet.
