Gladys Asmah is alive – aide

Mrs Gladys Asmah, a former Minister in the Kufuor administration is still alive contrary to media reports that she has passed on.

A family spokesperson, Mr David Okruw Aidoo confirmed to Graphic Online that Mrs Asmah was still at the intensive care unit of the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital responding to treatment.

“Infact she has been here for a week now and is even in a better condition than she was brought here last week,” Mr Aidoo said.

Some media houses reported early Monday morning that the former Women and Children Affairs and later Fisheries Minister had passed on.

But speaking to Graphic Online Mr Aidoo, who is a personal aide to Mrs Asmah said she was not dead.

He related her condition to old age and its associated sickness and said the doctors have not been able to pin-point what was exactly wrong with her.

‘The doctors have not described her condition as a crisis situation. She occasionally opens her eyes and show signs and has shown some improvements than she was brought here earlier’

He described as ‘botched’ the information that went out that Mrs Asmah was dead.

Mrs Asmah who turns 76 this year was born on October 16, 1939, in Cape Coast, in the Central Region.
