Former Minister of Tourism under the late president Mills’ administration, Zita Benson has alleged that former Finance Minister and Minister for Finance designate was flown abroad for vaccination against the coronavirus.

News of the evacuation of the former Finance Minister, Ken Ofori Attah to the United States went viral after a press release was issued by the Finance Ministry in Accra.

Per the press release, Ken Ofori Attah had to be flown outside for intensive medical care as he suffers complications related to covid which he recovers from in recent time.

But for Zita Benson, Ken Atta’s evacuation to the US is not just about getting medical care but to get him vaccinated against the coronavirus as well.

“Yeah he is going to get his vaccine shot,” she alleged in a facebook post sighted by

She further hilariously questioned Ken Atta as to why he was flown abroad for medical care instead of being taken to the National Cathedral which his ministry has allocated a lot of money for

“The rest of the population can wait. They couldn’t build even one clinic in four years.

Anyway, why didn’t he go for treatment at the national cathedral he made money available for instead?

By the way, Speedy recovery” she wrote in what appears to be a mixed feeling social media post.
