Minority Leader in Parliament, Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu, has hinted that although the Vice President is a public property, the controversy surrounding his health status unnecessary.
The Presidency revealed the Vice-President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia had been flown to the UK for further medical treatment after he was reported unwell last Friday.
The statement signed by the Chief of Staff Frema Osei-Opare said the Vice-President is on medical leave as advised by his doctors.
Speaking to Ekourba Gyasi on Atinka AM Drive Monday, Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu explained that although he backs the calling by the minority on the release of the state of the Vice President’s health, he added that sometimes, it is better to keep such delicate issues off the public lens.
“Relating the whole situation to that of a nuclear family, the health status of ailing breadwinners are not revealed to the other members of the family until he approves of the decision,’” he added.
According to Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu, he was chastised by the NDC who had the Majority in Parliament for bringing up the health status of the Prez Atta Mills.
