COVID-19: Prez Akufo-Addo not in London for treatment – Presidency

Ghanaians have been asked to disregard a media report that said President Nana Akufo-Addo was in London receiving treatment for COVID-19.

A statement from the Presidency said the publication was “clearly a figment of the author’s imagination”.

The Director of Communications at the Presidency, Eugene Arhin in a Facebook post advised the public to disregard the “false story”.

“Kindly disregard the FALSE STORY published by the Herald Newspaper to the effect that the President was on Saturday “flown out of the country to London for COVID-19 treatment,” Mr Arhin wrote in a post accompanied by a photograph of the President sitting at the end of a table with the First Lady and two other young women.

“The President is in the country, and he’s currently at the Presidential Villa in Jubilee House, observing the 14-day self-isolation precautionary measure, in compliance with COVID-19 protocols”.

It will be recalled that the Information Minister, Mr Kojo Oppong Nkrumah in a statement last Saturday disclosed that President Akufo-Addo is on a 14-day self-isolation “after at least one person within his close circle tested positive for COVID-19”.

The President will be working from the Presidential Villa at the Jubilee House during his isolation.
