One key person, former President Jerry John Rawlings who is the founder of the party, was however missing.

After missing the first and second events in Tamale and Accra respectively, many would have thought the NDC would be third time lucky to have their founder join the Unity efforts which did it did not materialise.

But even the fiercest of his critics will forgive him if they realised he used the time to bring show some love to a seven-year-old boy accident victim.

As part of his visit to Kumasi over the weekend, he visited the young boy who lost both limbs after being hit by a vehicle at Offinso in the Ashanti region a few months ago.

The seven-year-old, Peter Mensah, who was on his way home from school before the accident occurred has had his legs amputated and is said to be positively responding to treatment at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH).

Speaking after being briefed by doctors, former President Rawlings explained that he had decided, after seeing the 'pitiful' video of the accident, to visit anytime he had the opportunity to travel to Kumasi.

He commended doctors, nurses and benefactors for their contributions towards Peter's recovery and also promised to do what he could to raise some support for the treatment.
