Aliu Mahama to be flown outside for medical treatment

The Former Vice President Alhaji Aliu Mahama is likely to be flown outside the country for medical treatment according to the CEO of the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital, Professor Otu Nartey.

Rumors were rife on Wednesday that the ex-Vice President had passed on after he was admitted to the Korle-Bu hospital some ten days ago.

Several media houses categorically reported that the former Vice President had died after suffering from a heart related illness; but Prof. Otu Nartey dismissed the reports describing them as mere rumors.

Prof. Otu Nartey added that considering the critical nature of the former Vice President’s health, it is likely that he would be flown outside the country to either Germany or the France for proper medical care.

He added that Doctors at the Korle –Bu hospital are currently monitoring him to ensure that his situation is stable before he is flown outside the country for medical treatment.
