As it happened, few seconds after this picture was taken
Its been weeks of planning, leading and ensuring that, every aspect of Ghana's desire, to engage in the head count of all Ghanaians and people, living in Ghana is known and the intent is that, this details, will help our leaders to plan for the country and its people.
But interestingly, we all know that, that will not in any way, suddenly change the fortunes of the ordinary Ghanaian, especially when the political class, is getting hungrier and greedy, by the days. Well, notwithstanding this assertion of mine, the leadership of the Ghana Statistical Service, have been working tirelessly, to ensure that, Ghana have a firm grip on its population numbers.
If you have been listening to the news, The head of Ghana Statistical Service (GSS), Professor Samuel Kobina Annim who usually gives monthly updates on the nation's depreciation figures, had somewhat been more frequent now, due to the just-ended National Census Exercise, had unfortunately suffered from a serious health complication on LIVE TV.
In the video, which had since, gone viral, the renowned academic and now Government appointee, suffered a stroke complication on live TV., while he was addressing the public on the ongoing Population and Housing Census exercise which commenced on 13th June, 2021.
In the viral video, Professor Anim went speechless and later began to stammer behind the podium while speaking to the audience and was swiftly attended to by some of his staff at the event and was later rushed to the hospital, as seen here Head Of Statistical Service Suffers Hyperventilates On Live Tv - YouTube (VIDEO).
Well, fast forward, renowned journalist cum fast rising Lawyer, Lawyer Samson Anyenini, has expressed his disgust at everyone, who shared the video. Clearly, I am part, as I have also shared the link, in the preceding paragraph. GOD HAVE MERCY ON ME.
