Update on Finance minister designate, Ken Ofori-Atta’s health condition – ghanapublisher.com

On Sunday, February 14, 2021, the Ministry of Finance issued a communiqué captioned, “KEN OFORI-ATTA OFF TO THE USA FOR MEDICAL CARE”. “After recovering from COVID-19 last December, Mr. Ofori-Atta has had medical complications which doctors advise, require further investigations not currently available in Ghana”, a portion of the statement read.

This news, since last night which ordinarily should elicit goodwill messages to the Minister has sadly generated unpleasant commentary among the public, particularly among NDC social media activists. The minister’s critics say the Minister has traveled abroad because the Akufo-Addo led government which he serves has failed to build and equip local Hospitals with ultramodern facilities to battle the deadly Coronavirus pandemic.

Some have gone to the extent of pronouncing the Minister-designate dead, compelling his Personal Assistant, Michael Asare-Bediako to release on social media a photograph of his indisposed boss in the U.S.A, moments after he touched down from the Delta 157 Airline to clear all doubts.

For the records, Ken Ofori Atta is ALIVE. He’s not dead as the evil plotters will want the public to believe. He’s in high spirit and will undergo his medical review as scheduled.

It must be stated for purposes of argument that NO Airline in the world will fly a patient with an infectious disease like Ebola, Tuberculosis, Meningitis etc, let alone the DEADLY COVID-19.

It is for this reason why the child of a popular Ghanaian politician (name withheld) died abroad supposedly because the country of residence at the time would not allow the child to be ‘medevaced’ (medical evacuation) overseas just because they thought the child had meningitis which is infectious. It was later found to be malaria by which time the “poor” child had died.

Narrowing down to Ken Ofori-Atta’s medical leave and COVID-19 treatments, it must be emphasized that in order to board any flight overseas, the Airline requires a negative test within 48 hours of flying from passengers.

Again, no hospital or consultant in a country like the US will attend to a COVID-19 patient from overseas. The patient must have had two(2) consecutive negative tests in the spate of 2-3 weeks. This is a prerequisite condition which can’t be compromised.

Ken Ofori Atta

That said, the point must also be made that Ken Ofori Atta has been seeing specialists for his medical treatment for decades. There’s nothing unusual about what he’s sought to do this time. It’s rather unfortunate people will go to the extent of wishing him dead.

Get well soon, Mr. Ofori-Atta.
