A former Presidential staffer under HE John Dramani Mahama administration, Stan Dogbe has taken a strike at Okyehene Amoatia Ofori Panin II who revealed how the former Vice President Paa Kwesi Amissah-Arthur was taken to the 37 military hospital in a pick-up bucket before dying.
Taking a swing at the Paramount chief of Akyem Abuakwa, Stan Dogbe described the revered chief’s narration as an attempt to score cheap popularity.
In a video posted on Facebook, the Okyehene described how the former Vice President who died on Friday, 29 June 2018, was transported to the hospital at the back of a pick-up. “There was no ambulance to convey the former vice president to the 37 Military Hospital,” Okyehene stated.
“As it’s been for 14 years, any time I go there, I meet my friend and we’ll talk, shake hands … and then go to our different machines… I heard ‘bang’! Three women in the gym were screaming, I left my machine and went and there laid my friend trying to find some air to breathe.
“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, so we threw the former vice-president in the back of a pick-up and drove off to 37.” Okyehene narrated
Stan Dogbe who classified the narration as a ‘unreal popularity seeking story’ has some questions for the Chief, which he posted on facebook hours ago.
