President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo will pay for the surgery to separate a set of conjoined twins at the Greater Accra Regional Hospital (Ridge Hospital).
This was disclosed by the Chief of Staff, Mrs Akosua Frema Osei-Opare, on Monday, 5 July 2021.
The Siamese twins are conjoined at the head.
The procedure to separate them would be the first of its kind in Ghana.
The children and their mother are currently on admission at the hospital awaiting the procedure.
The physicians require about GHS3 million for the entire procedure.
The medical director of the Ridge Hospital, Dr Emmanuel Srofenyoh, has appealed to the public to donate to support the surgery, explaining that the government had already supported the purchase of the equipment needed for the surgery.
