The Director of Communication at the Presidency, Mr Eugene Arhin, has denied reports circulating on social media that President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo was rushed to the Nyaho Clinic recently for falling ill.
Mr Arhin, in a statement, said Mr Akufo-Addo, indeed, visited the Nyaho Clinic but the purpose was to visit a stalwart of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Mr Tommy Amematekpor, who was on admission at the clinic.
The statement said at the moment, Mr Akufo-Addo is in Niger for an ECOWAS meeting.
“The video making the rounds on some social media platforms, and, unsurprisingly, some of our friends from the opposition, are claiming, with glee, that the President was rushed to the Nyaho Clinic. For the avoidance of doubt, no such thing happened,” Mr Arhin said.
He added: “The President on Wednesday, 6 November 2019, after commissioning the Ga-East District Hospital in Kwabenya, en route to Jubilee House, went to the Nyaho Clinic to visit Mr Tommy Amematekpor, a stalwart of the NPP, who is on admission at the clinic.
“The President, at the moment, is in Niamey, Niger, attending the ECOWAS Extraordinary Session on Guinea Bissau.”
