Paa Kwesi Amissah Arthur

The wife of former vice-president Paa Kwesi Amissah Arthur after some period of silence on the sudden demise of her husband some few years ago has opened up about the circumstances behind his death.

Ghana went silent on 29th June 2018 when it was reported in various news portals that the former Vice-President Amissah-Arthur has passed on whiles he was going his routinely exercise session in the gym.

Stories that went around that day were after he collapsed during the training session, there was no car around and has to be placed in the bucket of a pick-up truck before been rushed to the hospital.

But according to the former 2nd lady of the land, that story was a lie and her husband was rather placed in the back seat of a Benz car before been rushed to the hospital.

Shedding more light on his death she disclosed that her late husband was almost done with his regular training at the gym when he collapsed on the cross-trainer.

“On Friday 29th June, 2018, we got to the Airforce gym at 4.30 am, he did his exercises… we were almost through, he went on the cross-trainer being the last exercise that he [was to] do and then he collapsed,” she narrated to David Ampofo on ‘Time With David’.

She revealed that Dr Naa Tagoe who is a member of the gym and works at Ridge Hospital rushed and resuscitated him checked his pulse everything and said: “We should go to 37 Military Hospital.”

She added that a Senior Military Officer who was also at the gym advised that transporting the late Vice President in his Mercedes Benz wasn’t advisable, so he offered his double cabin pickup.

“We went in a Benz, so the doctor and this officer said if we put him at the back of the Benz its so short that we have to cramp him so I have a pickup; a double cabin pickup, let’s put him on the second seat of the double cabin and let the doctor sit with him and I go with somebody else,” she said.

Mrs. Amissah-Arthur noted that on their way from the Airforce gym to the hospital, the late Vice President had been resuscitated. When they got to the hospital, she indicated that he was first admitted at the emergency ward where his vital signs were checked before being moved to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU).

Mrs. Amissah-Arthur stated that when the doctors broke the news of her husband’s death to her, she quickly requested a post-mortem report because they first told her everything was alright with the late Vice President, “so I was very surprised at what had happened”.

“My husband was a stickler for health… he does six months check-up, he didn’t have diabetes or pressure so I wanted to know… but really he wasn’t put in a bucket of a pickup,” she stressed.

Elon Musk accuses Twitter of fraud in countersuit

Published

on

Elon Musk has accused the social media platform, Twitter, of fraudulently holding back information about the company as part of a countersuit.

The countersuit by the billionaire and Tesla CEO alleges that Twitter committed fraud, breach of contract, and violation of a securities law in Texas, where Musk lives.

Musk’s counterclaims were filed confidentially last week and unsealed in a filing late Thursday at the Delaware Chancery Court.

Musk offered to buy Twitter earlier this year, then tried to back out of the deal by claiming the social platform was infested with a larger number of “spam bots” and fake accounts than Twitter had disclosed.

Twitter sued to force him to complete the acquisition. Musk responded by filing his countersuit.

Musk’s attorneys argue in the countersuit that Twitter “misrepresentations or omissions” distorted the company’s value and caused Musk to agree in April to buy it at an inflated price. They said Twitter’s own disclosures revealed that it has 65 million fewer “monetizable daily active users,” who can be shown digital ads, than the 238 million that Twitter claims.

The filing also said most of Twitter’s ads are shown only to a sliver of the company’s user base.

Musk’s team also accused Twitter of making too many major changes in recent months without consulting Musk, including personnel decisions and allegedly disobeying social media restrictions imposed by the government of India, which is Twitter’s third largest market. Musk had pledged to make Twitter a haven for free speech but has also said it must comply with the local laws where it operates.

In an unexpected twist, Twitter filed its response denying Musk’s accusations before Musk’s own counterclaims surfaced.

Twitter called Musk’s reasoning “a story, imagined in an effort to escape a merger agreement that Musk no longer found attractive.” The company, in particular, took issue with Musk’s estimate of fake accounts, saying the analysis relied on a “generic web tool” that designated Musk’s own Twitter account as a likely bot.

“The result is a distortion that Musk is hoping will nonetheless make waves,” Twitter’s response said.

The case is scheduled to go to trial on October 17. The Delaware court handles many high-profile disputes between businesses, such as Twitter, that are incorporated there.
