The Chief Executive of Okere District Assembly, Daniel Kenneth, has dismissed rumours that Member of Parliament (MP) for Okere Constituency Daniel Botwe has died.
The DCE said Dan Botwe is fine and the rumours should be treated with all the contempt they deserve.
Dan Botwe, who is also Minister of Regional Reorganisation and Development, was admitted to the University of Ghana Medical Centre (UGMC) after testing positive for coronavirus.
Mr Kenneth said the Okere MP was discharged “by God’s grace” on Saturday.
“I wish to implore all concerned persons not to be alarmed and that he’s home with his family,” he said in a statement on Saturday.
“Let us all continue to offer prayers of good health and long life for him.”
