Ghana’s Finance Minister, Ken Ofori Atta has for the first time opened up on his quite obvious ‘deteriorating’ health condition.
The minister’s current plumpy looks have gotten many Ghanaians talking and wondering what could be wrong with him.
Speaking in an interview on Metro TV, Mr. Ofori Atta as quoted by Ghana web explained, it all started after his discharge from the hospital after he contracted COVID-19.
“Things were pretty good, the COVID was gone, and then, I began to feel jaundiced and so feeling quite unwell.”
He was later diagnosed with an inflamed liver.
“I eventually got diagnosed that the liver was inflamed, therefore, it required some work to determine what was 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 said.
He noted however that he is being cautious with oil intake.
Notwithstanding, he emphasized that his DNA is in good shape to match up to the role he plays in the Finance Ministry.
