Ken Ofori-Atta Responds To Rumours Of Ill Health

Rumours have been rife concerning a supposed ill health of the finance minister of the country, Ken Ofori-Atta which was bourne out of changes in appearance of the minister.

Addressing the matter in an interview on Metro Tv’s ‘Good Evening Ghana’ show hosted by Paul Adom-Otchere, the minister said the rumours of him being sick had a degree of truth as he had been diagnosed with jaundice and following a series of test, it was discovered he had an inflamed liver.

He explained, “I got COVID in somewhere of November and got out of the hospital emergency maybe the 10th of December and came home. Things were pretty good, the COVID was gone, then, I began to feel jaundiced and so feeling quite unwell.

“I eventually got diagnosed that the liver was inflamed, therefore, it required some work to determine what was really happening. That took some time to begin to find the probable cure which involved steroids and all of that.

“So, I went back for review in August and the inflammation is pretty much gone and so, they are now titrating to see how to bring the steroids down so that one can get back to a normal life.

“But essentially pretty much minded and need to manage my rest and sleep and exercises and some good food,” Ken Ofori-Atta noted.

The minister is currently the most trending politician on the land after reading out the proposed 2022 budget which is pending approval. The budget captures a controversial 1.75% tax Government wants to introduce on electronic transactions, something many Ghanaians are kicking against.
