Chief of Staff’s presser on the whereabouts of Bawumia

It all started with some conflicting press statements claiming to be from the seat of the presidency about the health status of the vice president.

This mix up was later on clarified by an official statement from the Chief of Staff who clarified issues related to the Vice president’s whereabouts.

The time frame for Bawumia’s return is yet unknown as the government insists they don’t know when he returns and that he is recovering very fast.

By some sort of coincidence, President of the republic, Nana Addo Danquah Akufo Addo, on Sunday, also left for the Swearing-in ceremony of Liberia’s elected president, George Oppong Weah which happens on Monday 22, 2018.

What this implied is that having both the president and vice out of the country, the 1992 constitution mandates for the Speaker of Parliament, Professor Mike Ocquaye to be confirmed as the acting leader of Ghana.

This will see the Speaker of parliament oversee the obligations of a ceremonial president till the arrival of Nana Addo on January 23rd.
