Boakai discharged from Hospital

By Lincoln G. Peters

The Standard Bearer of the Unity Party (UP) former Vice President Joseph Nyumah Boakia has been officially discharged from the ELWA hospital in Paynesville after seeking brief medical attention there.

Ambassador Boakai reportedly checked in at the hospital on Sunday, January 8, 2023, for precautionary observation after he felt minor fever.

Making the disclosure in an exclusive interview with this paper Wednesday evening 11 January, Unity Party Secretary General Amos Tweh, said Mr. Boakai is discharged and currently at home with his family.

He said Amb. Boakai is fine and in good health, adding that the party is gratified by the many concerns from partisans, well-wishers and supporters for the love and concern shown.

He indicated that Amb. Boakai is a human and not a machine, and considering his age of over 80, he is not excused from illness, adding that it’s saddening that people would politicize the former VP’s stay at a hospital when they are aware that he is not a superhuman.

The Unity Party confirms here that its Standard Bearer, Amb. Joseph Nyumah Boakai checked into a local hospital in Monrovia on Sunday, January 8, 2023, for precautionary observation after he felt a minor fever.

In a statement, the UP informs the public that Amb. Boakai is fine and in good health.

It however notes with delight that its Standard Bearer sought medical attention at a hospital in Liberia, something which demonstrates his commitment to reposing trust and confidence in Liberian institutions.

Reports say the former Vice President was admitted at ELWA Hospital, a Christian-operated institution in Paynesville, outside Monrovia.  

Meanwhile, the UP says it is deeply gratified by the myriad of concerns from partisans, well-wishers and supporters alike and calls on the general public to remain hopeful of a better agenda for Liberia’s transformation guided by the able leadership of Amb. Boakai. 

Mr. Boakai is among several Presidential hopefuls here seeking to defeat President George Weah at the ballot in October.

He served as Vice President under former President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf from 2005 to 2017, but that political union turned sour later after he criticized the administration for squandering opportunities much to the anger of Madam Sirleaf.
