READ FULL STATEMENT BELOW:
My attention has been drawn to messages circulating on social media to the effect that I am in ICU after testing positive to Covid 19 sending worrying signals and misinformation to my well wishers and party faithfuls.
I must categorically state that I am not in ICU neither am I in Korle Bu at the moment. I was admitted for an overnight review on my covid status at the ISOLATION CENTER in Korle Bu yesterday around 5pm and discharged at 11am this morning.
I have not in anyway been taking ill or suffer any serious break down to send me into ICU.
I ask all and sundry to disregard this hollow speculation and confirm I’m as fit as I use to be. Thank you!
