Bawumia flies to UK for Medical Attention

Dr. Muhammad Bawumia

The Vice President of the Republic, Alhaji Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, in the late hours of Friday, 19th January 2018, was flown to the United Kingdom for medical attention.

It is said that after series of tests by his doctors yesterday when he was

rushed to the hospital, he was referred to specialists in the United Kingdom for further observation.

A statement from the Office of the Chief of staff has stated that, “The Vice President of the Republic, Alhaji Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, on Friday, 19th Janaury, 2018, left Ghana for United Kingdom for Medical leave, on the advice of his doctors.”

He was accompanied by the 2nd Lady, Hajia Samira Bawumia” – the statement added

An earlier statement on social media pointing to the UK trip was described as fake.

In a disclaimer on his facebook wall, Mr. Arhin indicated that the statement was purported and not authored by any official from the Presidency as was suggested.

“I have not authored or issued any statement stating that the Vice President travelled to the UK. It’s fake. Thank you.”, the post read.

Confirming this on Joynews’ Newsfile, Mr. Arhin indicated that though an official statement was forwarded to specific persons and media houses through email Friday, this particular one being circulated as from the presidency in some news items is inaccurate.

“Any formal statement from the Flagstaff house is almost every single day sent by email…just like yesterday’s release which indicated that the Vice President had taken ill, that release was sent by the Flagstaff communications bureau email address so this statement flying about on whatsapp definitely did not come from the Flagstaff House communications bureau, I’m sure it’s something someone just fabricated”, he said.
