Majority Leader of Parliament Alban Bagbin has been rushed to the 37 Military Hospital after reporting to work Thursday, StarrFMonline.com can confirm.

It is, however, unclear what happened to the Nadowli-Kaleo legislator, who was sworn into office on Wednesday, October 1.

Speaking to StarrFMonline.com, the Deputy Director of Public Affairs of Parliament, Kate Addo, said the veteran lawmaker was seen dizzy and had to be rushed to the hospital for medical attention.

Parliamentary sources say the legislator had gone for his beverage when his colleague MPs sensed he was unwell and was immediately taken to see his doctor.

Bagbin was the Majority Leader in Parliament in 2009, but was appointed Minister for Water Resources Works and Housing following a cabinet reshuffle by President Atta Mills (late) in January 2010.
