Member of Parliament for Assin Central Constituency, Kennedy Agyapong, has revealed that vice president of Ghana Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia collapsed before he was rushed to London for external remedy.
Hon Agyapong was in London for a memorial service of Joseph Ayi Ankrah, father to Ray Ankrah, the Financial Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the United Kingdom (UK) but has rejected suggestions that although, he made time off his busy schedule to visit Bawumia, he was prevented from seeing him.
“I didn’t even know number two [Dr. Bawumia] was sick. I was at Landmark Hotel and decided to step down for my breakfast. Then I saw someone wave at me and it was Yofi Grant. He was the only one seated so I went and sat beside him,” Agyapong said on Adom TV on Tuesday.
“Then he said there was something wrong with number two so I asked what it was. He told me he had collapsed [in Ghana,]. Those were the words he used. That he collapsed and he had to be rushed here so I asked how we could get information about his condition.
“Then he started texting and a reply came that he was better. Few minutes later, we saw the Second Lady. Apparently, she spent the night at the same hotel and she told us he was feeling better now.
” I then asked her to extend my regards to him. The following day, I was there with Yofi Grant when he [Bawumia] came,” he added.
According to reports in the local media, the vice-president is expected to arrive in Ghana on Friday, February 2, and start work on Monday.
