- Former president John Mahama left NDC's congress on Saturday, November 17, 2018, to visit some delegates admitted to the 37 Military Hospital
- They were rushed to the hospital after being involved in an accident on the way to the event
- The delegates were coming from Mpraeso in the Eastern Region and Konongo in the Ashanti region.
Former president John Mahama cut short his participation in the 9th National Annual Congress of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to visit some delegates at the 37 Military Hospital.
This was after they were involved in an accident as they headed to the Trade Fair Centre in Accra.
The accident reportedly involved delegates from Mpraeso in the Eastern Region and Konongo in the Ashanti region.
According to the NDC National Organiser Kofi Adams, the accident occurred at the traffic light at the El-Wak Sports stadium on Saturday, November 17, 2018.
About 9,000 delegates of the NDC are taking part in the process to elect new national officers, who will lead the party for the next four years.
The event also presented an unexpected turn of events as some members of the party protested against some provisions which sought to allow for the appointment of Communication Officers.
The party had earmarked the provision for amendment at its ongoing congress but when the clause was read on the floor of congress to delegates, it was met with a fierce opposition.
The Master of Ceremonies consequently announced that the amendment will be suspended to allow for the election of such officers.
