News coming in indicates that the Finance Minister, Ken Ofori Atta, a cousin of the president, Akufo Addo, under whose tenure some Banks collapsed is still at post. It is said that powers from above stopped him from putting in his resignation letter. It is rumoured that he is not in the best of health. We wish him a very speedy recovery.
The Finance Minister suffered covid not too long ago. And Covid, as we know, requires pervasive emergency care when it reaches the point it got with him.
It affects every part of your body and does extensive damage to the organs requiring time to heal even after defeating the virus. It is a War which is not won without some internal casualties being recorded, again, when it reaches the point it got with the Finance Minister.
Covid is not a weak opponent neither. In Ghana, it killed Jerry John Rawlings, a soldier who once a decade, with a simple wish, could command our entire nation to sleep at 6 in the night. It killed Sir John, whose persuasive oratory could move the devil to humour. It killed a Supreme Court Justice, in whose hands we committed the power to determine amongst others life and death. And it still lurks around slowing killing up to about 1000 people, at least one thousand Ghanaians, since it first emerged.
And it is not local; around the world, at least 4.5 million people have been killed by Covid directly. And this does not include even her indirect casualties. That disease sent the Finance Minister to stand at the junction between life and death, with each side pulling onto him to have him. But God saved him.
Fast forward, the top cabinet minister is believed not to be in the best of health as he has not been seen in a while. The Finance Minister, Ken Ofori Atta under is still at post after rumours that hat, he was going to RESIGN over HEALTH COMPLICATIONS.
