Former President Rawlings is doing fine

Accra- The Office of the former President Rawlings on Wednesday assured the public that he is in good health and able to meet his daily routine activities.

It said former President Rawlings was not rushed to the hospital as erroneously published by a section of the media, on Wednesday, September 26, 2018.

A statement, issued by Mr Kobina Andoh Amoakwa of the Former President’s Communications Directorate, and copied to the Ghana News Agency in Accra, however, said the former President was admitted at the Cardiothoracic Unit of the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital a week ago, as a precautionary measure to manage a low blood count condition.

It said the primary cause had since been detected and managed.

”The medical team who managed him have not recommended any further treatment outside the shores of Ghana. The former President has no immediate plans of seeking medical treatment outside the country,” it stated.

The statement expressed appreciation to all well-wishers, who called or sent messages of concern.

It said Mr Rawlings also expressed gratitude to the doctors and nurses at the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital for their care during his stay at the facility.
