General News of Thursday, 8 November 2012
A very reliable source close to the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital, have debunked rumours that former Vice President Alhaji Aliu Mahama who is on admission at the health facility had passed on.
The source said the former Vice President is alive and responding to treatment at the Cardiothoracic Centre.
Speaking to the Ghana News Agency in an interview on Wednesday, the source explained that Alhaji Mahama was taken from his bed for investigations, and “I think someone might have come in and saw an empty bed and concluded that he was dead”.
“The former Vice President is alive and still on admission and that I can say for a fact.”
Alhaji Mahama was rushed to the Hospital at the weekend for treatment of a condition that cannot be made public until doctors attending to him have the permission to allow disclosure.
He is at the intensive care unit but reports say he is in a stable condition.
This comes after President John Mahama took a lot of condemnation for asking Muslims at the Eid ul Adha celebration barely two weeks ago, to pray for the former Vice President, who could not attend the event because of ill health.
