The Finance Minister, Ken Ofori Atta, has opened up over his recent battle with ill-health leading to his change in looks.

Speaking on Good Evening Ghana on Thursday, Mr Ofori-Atta told Metro TV’s Paul Adom-Otchere that, after recovering from Covid-19, he was diagnosed with jaundice and after a series of tests, it was discovered that his liver was inflamed.

“I got COVID in somewhere of November [2020] and got out of the hospital emergency maybe the 10th of December and came home. Things were pretty good, the COVID was gone, then, I began to feel jaundiced and so feeling quite unwell.

“I eventually got diagnosed that the liver was inflamed, therefore, it required some work to determine what was really 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 noted.

When asked if the good food will include some waakye, the Minister was quick to say that he is being careful with oil.

“But it is good. I think it was quite clear that the issue of prayers and intervention and all of that; and so we are very grateful to God and a lot of people who held us in prayer. But clearly, the DNA is strong enough to be able to do the work that we do,” he stressed.
