Akufo-Addo not hospitalized; he’s campaigning vigorously - Hamid

The Spokesperson for the New Patriotic Party Flagbearer (NPP), Nana Akufo-Addo; Mustapha Hamid, has dismissed social media reports that Nana Akufo-Addo has been rushed to London for medical attention.

Although the NPP’s 2016 Presidential Candidate has been campaigning in the Eastern Region since Tuesday, sections of the media early this week reported that he had been flown out of the country for medical attention.

In a Citi News interview, Mustapha Hamid called on Ghanaians to discredit the rumours insisting that Nana Akufo-Addo is well and could not be distracted from the campaign trail.

“That’s a lie. As I speak with you, we just left Wenchi in the Akwatia constituency with Nana Addo… today [Saturday] he has addressed about four towns, we’ve been to Akyem Awesa, and we’ve been to several towns in the Akim Oda constituency and Akim Swedru constituencies and so on.”

“He is very well and alive; he is the one addressing the crowds and so on so I really don’t know where this fabrication comes from,” Mustapha Hamid stated.
