The Health Minister, Kwaku Agyeman-Manu, has taken a two-week leave.
Rainbowradioonline.com gathered that the official leave started last week.
His leave was granted by the Chief of Staff, Akosua Frema Osei-Opare.
The Minister is currently on tour with the President, who is on a regional tour.
It was alleged that the Minister had resigned, but the news about his resignation has been described as false.
Pressure is mounting on the Minister to resign following the botched Sputnik-V vaccine agreement.
His critics say he breached the laid down protocols and rules before signing the agreement.
