According to him, while on admission the late Mayor was never allowed to speak to anyone and that “his phones were even off.”

“Last week Wednesday he was even in the office, but I’m told he was taken to Accra for treatment and was prevented from speaking to anyone,” Mr Buckman said.

According to Accra based Joy FM, prior to his hospitalization, the late Mayor had continued to report to work even after his personal driver had tested positive for the virus.
