The director of communication at the presidency – Jubilee House – Mr. Eugene Arhin has denied rumours the president Nana Akufo-Addo has been hospitalised at the Nyaho Clinic in Accra.
“For the avoidance of doubt, no such thing happened,” Mr. Arhin said in a Facebook post concerning a video making rounds about the president being rushed to the medical facility.
“This video is 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,” he noted.
Mr. Arhin stated the president was actually at Nyaho Clinic to visit a party member, but not as a patient.
“The President on Wednesday, 6th November, 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,” he stressed.
Ghana’s president is presently in Niamey, capital of Niger, attending the ECOWAS Extraordinary Session on Guinea Bissau.
