Here is why Bawumia was flown to UK

The Minister of Information, Mustapha Hamid explained that Dr Bawumia was advised to rest completely for some days.

Hamid told Accra-based Class FM that “He was advised to rest completely out of disturbances. He is fine now but he has to rest a while before returning to Ghana.”

“The purpose of his trip was to have a complete rest… where you don’t have many people like friends and so on, worrying him.”

Dr Bawumia went to the UK on Friday (January 19, 2018) for a better medical check-up after he reported ill at work.

In an earlier statement issued by the Director of Communications at the Presidency, Eugene Arhin said the Vice President “…in the early hours of Friday.”

He later returned home from the Flagstaff House before leaving for the UK.

“He was attended to by his doctors and is currently undergoing medical tests and observation. Any further information will be duly communicated,” the statement added.

A statement signed by the Chief Of Staff, Frema Opare on Saturday said he was flown to the UK on the advice of his doctors.

“He was accompanied by the Second lady Hajia Samira Bawumia,” the statement added.
