Zita Benson, a former Minister of Tourism under the late President Mills’ administration has alleged that Ken Ofori-Atta was flown to the United States of America to receive the COVID-19 Vaccine.
The Ministry of Finance in a Press Statement dated February 14, 2021, revealed that the Minister for Finance-designate has been flown to the United State over post Coronavirus complications.
Part of the statement reads;
“The Ministry of Finance wishes to inform the general public and stakeholders that Mr. Ken Ofori-Atta, the Representative of the President at the Ministry of Finance and Minister-designate for Finance, will travel to the United States of America today for a special medical review.”
It added: “After recovering from COVID-19 last December, Ofori-Atta has had medical complications which doctors advise, require further interventions not currently available in Ghana.”
However, reacting to the news, Zita Benson in a Facebook post has alleged that Ken Ofori-Atta was rather flown to the US in order to receive the COVID-19 Vaccine.
“Yeah he is going to get his vaccine shot. The rest of the population can wait. They couldn’t build even one clinic in four years. Anyway, why didn’t he go for treatment at the national cathedral he made money available for instead? By the way, Speedy recovery”
