I’m Not Dead – Godfrey Tangu
The Member of Parliament for Wa East, Godfrey Tangu has dispelled news of his death adding that people eager to see his exit must wait for four more years.
Social Media was rife with reports Tuesday morning that the New Patriotic Party (NPP) lawmaker had died after battling a strange illness.
Mr. Tangu, reacting to news of his death in a phone interview with Starr FM’s Upper West Regional Correspondent Musah Lansah said; “we also heard it just this morning and I am the one talking to you now. I don’t know whether dead people talk. Dead people don’t talk. I am just in the premises and I am going for a committee meeting so I don’t know where this story is coming from.”
The MP, however, reports that he had been unwell and that he underwent surgery for a waist problem.
“I know the enemy is at work. In fact, it has been going on for some time now. People have been fabricating stories about my health situation.
“Indeed, I had a waist problem and underwent operation in June and I have been recuperating since then,” he told Lansah.
Mr. Tangu also dismissed rumours that he had written to the speaker of parliament of his inability to continue as MP, saying that he had sought permission from the Speaker and Majority leader respectively to go for treatment.
