Meanwhile, 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'.
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.
