Ken Ofori Atta traveled to the United States of America for a special medical review,” a statement by the Finance Ministry on Sunday said.
It added: “After recovering from Covid-19 last December, Mr. Ofori-Atta has had medical complications which doctors advise, require further interventions not currently available in Ghana.
The statement noted Parliament has been informed of the health condition of the former Finance Minister.
”He is expected to be away for two weeks. Mr. Ofori-Atta was scheduled to appear before the Appointments Committee of Parliament on Tuesday, 16th February, 2021. The leadership of Parliament has been duly notified for a new date to be fixed upon his return“.
