Special aide to former President Mahama, Stan Dogbe, has taken Okyehene, Osagyefo Amotia Ofori Panin II, to the cleaners over the latter’s recent comments on the death of Vice President Amissah Arthur.
Okyenhene Osagyefo Amoatia Ofori Panin II was present at the Airforce Gym when the former vice president collapsed during a workout session.
"We gathered around him and pumped his heart as hard as we could, yelled out his name; his wife was calling out: 'Jesus, save him!' I just said: 'Call the ambulance, let's take him to the hospital.’ There were about seven, eight of us, and something dawned on me. When we took him out, there was no ambulance, there was no car, we threw the former vice-president in the back of a pick-up and drove off to 37,” the respected chief recounted in in a video posted on Facebook.
"At this moment, I went back to the gym and everybody had departed. The place was empty. I just went and got my towel and my phone, called my driver to take me home. I was waiting so anxiously on the phone to hear if somebody will call and say that he's alright. The call came, and Boakye, the trainer in the gym said Osagyefo, he didn't make it. The vice-president is dead," he added.
However, Mr Dogbe is unenthused about Osagyefo's comments, saying “ someone should please tell the chief that he was not the only one present when the tragedy struck our late boss and VP of this country to go around talking.
He said the Okyehene should cease the recklessness of seeking cheap popularity by going to public events and seeking to share coloured stories.
Below is the full statement:
Someone should please tell the chief that he was not the only one present when the tragedy struck our late boss and VP of this country to go around talking.
He had a luxury vehicle there, and many others had their cars there, if he had a good heart and a spirit of helping others, maybe; just maybe, he would have sent him to the hospital in his car.
He should cease the recklessness of seeking cheap popularity by going to public events and seeking to share coloured stories. Granted that he was sent to the hospital in someone's vehicle, a pick-up, is the back seat of the vehicle the bucket of the pick-up as his statement sort to portray?
Which gym in this country has a standby ambulance anyway?
Your 'son', Nana Addo is watching on as the National Ambulance Service collapses… deal with it and leave the family of our late boss to mourn their son, husband, grandpa, father, uncle and relation.
