Minister of Finance, Hon Ken Ofori-Atta has opened up on his health situation.
Due to changes in the Minister’s physical appearance, Ghanaians have been making different speculations about his ill-health.
Well, Mr Ofori Atta in a recent interview with Paul Adom Otchere on Good Evening Ghana on Metro TV has said that he is battling liver disease.
“I got COVID-19 somewhere in November and then got out of a hospital’s emergency. I came home on the 10th of December, things were pretty good when I came. Then I began to feel jaundiced. I was later diagnosed and told my liver was in flame and required some work to determine what was really happening.”
“It took some time to find the probable cure which involved steroids and all of that. I went back for review in August. The information was that it’s pretty much gone. They are now titrating to see how to bring the steroid down so I can get back to normal life.”
The Minister however insisted that he is fit enough to discharge his duties.
“Essentially, I’m pretty much mended. I need just to manage my rest, sleep and exercise and have some good food.”
“We are grateful to God and other people who have us in prayers. But clearly, the DNA is strong enough to do the work I have to do.”
