Bawumia’s health: Minority being busy bodies – MP

Member of Parliament for Subin, is called the bluff of the Minority demanding better and further particulars on the health status of the vice president, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia.

Eugene Boakye Antwi said the National Democratic Congress (NDC) MPs are making ugly noises because they have nothing to do.

His comment was in reaction to the Minority’s claim that photos and videos which show a healthy-looking Dr. Bawumia who is in the UK on what government said is medical leave is fake.

They are demanding an official statement from the presidency on the authenticity of the publications on social media to dispel any rumours on the health of the vice president.

But Eugene Boakye Antwi on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen programme Monday called on Ghanaians to ignore the NDC.

He maintained that Dr. Bawumia is just on medical leave and not bedridden as the opposition wants the citizenry to believe.

The Subin MP could not fathom the Minority is focused on Dr. Bawumia’s health when there are pressing issues begging their attention.

Eugene Boakye Antwi said government will not waste time on such trivialities but will focus on improving the socio-economic conditions in the country.
