Press statement on Bawumia’s ill health fake – Presidency


Vice President, Dr. Mahamadu Bawumia

Director of Communications at the Presidency, Eugene Arhin has described as ‘fake’, a press statement circulating on some media platforms, indicating that the Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia reported sick to work on Friday January 19 and is under medical observation.

The statement which made rounds on social media and on several media platforms read : “Dr. Bawumia “reported feeling unwell” today. “He was attended to by his doctors, and is currently undergoing medical tests and observation. Any further information will be duly communicated”.

In a disclaimer on his facebook wall however, 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. Its fake. Thank you.”, the post read.
