The Special Aide to the former president, John Agyekum Kufuor has denied reports that the ex-leader is on admission at the University of Ghana Medical Centre (UGMC) after contracting Covid-19.
Dr. Kwabena Osei Adubofour said the reports are false and that Mr. Kufuor is “hale and hearty.”
The denial comes after some media reports suggested that Mr. Kufuor and his wife have been isolated over Covid-19 fears.
The reports suggested that this was done after some security officers at the couple’s residence tested positive for the virus.
But Dr. Adubofour said the former president is doing well.
This comes after the presidency announced that President Akufo-Addo has gone into self-isolation after “least one person within his close circle tested positive for Covid-19.”
A statement signed by Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, the Information Minister said on the advice of doctors, the president is from “July 4, 2020, taking a 14-day precautionary self-isolation measure in compliance with Covid-19 protocols.”
