Audio:Akufo-Addo’s message to ‘those whose political fortunes depend on his ill-health’
President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has dispelled rumours he was rushed to the 37 Military Hospital over the weekend for immediate medical attention after collapsing.
According to the president, his presence at the facility was for a visit to a relation who had taken ill.
Laughing off the reports which went viral on social media on Sunday, President Akufo-Addo said he was “in the hands of God almighty,” adding that “all those whose political fortunes depend on my ill health and degeneration, all I can say is that, we are all in the hands of the Almighty.”
Speaking at the National Cyber Security Awareness month held at the Kofi Annan International Peacekeeping Training Centre, the President said “My presence on the re-visit to the Military hospital yesterday to visit my brother in law, the famous pilot, Captain Pius Mensah, who is unfortunately there for hip operation has been translated into my collapse on social media”.
He added that all who seek his downfall should note that God is the caretaker of everyone, a quote many believe is aimed at dispelling rumours he may be suffering from an ailment.
President Akufo-Addo is urging all that there is no cause for alarm.
