The Public Relations Office of the ministry revealed in a press statement that Mr. Ofori Atta is suffering complications from his Covid-19 recovery since December 2020.
“After recovery from Covid-19 last December, Mr. Ofori Atta has medical complications which doctors advise, require further interventions not currently available in Ghana,” excerpts of the statement added.
Ofori Atta is expected however to spend two weeks abroad and return for his appearance before the Appointments of Parliament for vetting for his portfolio.
Meanwhile, Kwame Asare Obeng, popularly known as A Plus has called on the Finance Minister-designate Ken Ofori-Atta to seek funding to build world-class hospitals instead of a cathedral.
In a Facebook post sighted by YEN.com.gh, A plus wished him a speedy recovery.
He however was quick to add that when he comes back after seeking medical attention, he should rather look for donations to build a world-class hospital instead of a cathedral.
This according to A plus will not force the country's leaders to travel all the way to America to seek medical attention.
