Ghana’s minister for finance, Ken Ofori Atta has for the first time opened up about his health conditions which have become a disturbing low-key issue among netizens.
Addressing his health status, Ken Ofori-Atta told Metro TV’s Paul Adom-Otchere on the ‘Good Evening Ghana’ show that, he has been diagnosed with jaundice and after some series of tests, it was discovered that his liver was inflamed.
He explained, “I got COVID in somewhere of November and got out of the hospital emergency maybe the 10th of December and came home. Things were pretty good, the COVID was gone, then, I began to feel jaundiced and so feeling quite unwell.
“I eventually got diagnosed that the liver was inflamed, therefore, it required some work to determine what was really happening. That took some time to begin to find the probable cure which involved steroids and all of that.
“So, I went back for review in August and the inflammation is pretty much gone and so, they are now titrating to see how to bring the steroids down so that one can get back to a normal life.
“But essentially pretty much minded and need to manage my rest and sleep and exercises and some good food,” Ken Ofori-Atta noted.
As a reminder, Kenneth Nana Yaw Ofori-Atta, is a Ghanaian investment banker who serves as the Minister for Finance and Economic Planning in the cabinet of Nana Akufo-Addo.
