Director of Communications at the Jubilee House, Eugene Arhin has rubbished reports of the president, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, being rushed to hospital last Wednesday.
A video has been making rounds on social media and said to have captured the president at Nyaho Clinic in Accra for medical attention.
Speaking on Happy FM’s Epa Hoa Daben show Mr Arhin said “For the avoidance of doubt, no such thing happened. The president was indeed at the Nyaho Clinic but was there to visit a staunch member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Tommy Amematekpor, who was on admission at the hospital.”
Mr Arhin added that the president made a stopover after he had commissioned the Ga East District Hospital, in Kwabenya, en route to the seat of government.
“The President, at the moment, is in Niamey, capital of Niger, attending the ECOWAS Extraordinary Session on Guinea Bissau.and he will arrive latest by 4pm today. He will arrive at Tamale airport because he has a programme to attend tomorrow.”
