In an interesting twist to the news item carried by Daily Graphic on Monday, the man who was reportedly arrested by a combined team of the Ghana Medical and Dental Council and the Madina police for practicing medicine for twenty years without a license has told Citi News, he has never been arrested.
Adams Arimeyaw, the founder of the Covenant Clinic in Madina, Accra, who spoke to Citi News during a visit said a team from the Council visited his health facility for inspection but never arrested him as published by the Daily Graphic newspaper.
The supposed fake doctor Adams Arimeyaw said: “what you heard from them (Daily Graphic), I think it was fake. It is not true that I was arrested.”

Whilst labeling Daily Graphic as ‘fake’, Arimeyaw was alleged to have fumbled when Citi News questioned him about his credentials.
Probe after probe, he was only able to tell the newsmen that he was trained in France and has many years of experience as a practitioner in the field, whilst failing to mention the medical school he trained in.
“I trained in Europe and after that I have worked in a lot of clinics. I was trained in France” he said.
Arimeyaw however, claimed that he has certification from the Environmental Health and Sanitation Unit.
