YEN.com.gh earlier reported that 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.

Minister on weekdays; heart surgeon on weekends: The story of Prof Kwabena Frimpong Boateng

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'.

One would consider the honorable minister to take a good rest after his weekday work is over but anyone saying this, clearly does not know Professor Kwabena Frimpong Boateng.

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.

Meanwhile, a young lady has shared a video and a story with popular Facebook counselor, Abena Magis on her page after they were reportedly denied access to healthcare in an emergency situation.
