I was never flown to the UK for Covid-19 Treatment – President Akufo-Addo


 The President of the Republic of Ghana, Nana Akufo Addo has denied media reports which were ostensibly fueled by the NDC that he was flown to the UK because he tested positive for Coronavirus.

President Nana Akufo-Addo made the comment when he met with members of the Vehicle and Asset Dealers Union of Ghana on Tuesday, July 21.

This is the first public speech the president is making since he came out of his self imposed 14-day mandatory isolation which he did as a precautionary measure for coming in contacts with a member of his party who had contracted Covid-19.

A few days ago, a spokesperson for the president released a statement confirming that Nana Akufo-Addo was going into self-isolation for two weeks as advised by his doctors, following someone he was in close contact with contracted Covid-19, adding that Addo has tested negative for the virus lately but he chose to isolate himself out of caution.

‘He has, as at today, tested negative, but has elected to take this measure out of the abundance of caution’, the statement said. It was also revealed that the President will continue working despite being isolated while observing Covid-19 protocols strictly.
While in isolation, news went rife that the President has been flown to the United Kingdom for treatment because he’s condition has worsened, something which has attributed to the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC). However, the president has released this new statement to debunk it completely.


‘I want to thank you for your interest in my welfare, I am fine and I am here. I was sitting in my room and I was told I was sitting in a plane that was heading for Oxford, and it’s trajectory plotted on a map. I was amazed but there it is, this is the Ghana in which we live, thank you,’ President Akufo-Addo said in response to well wishes from the Spokesperson of the Union, Mr Opoku-Agyemang.
