The 2012 vice presidential candidate of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the 2012 elections, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, “is doing very well” in hospital.
This is according to Prof Frimpong
Boateng, one of the specialists who first attended to Dr Bawuiah
following a road accident on the Bole-Bamboi road Sunday afternoon.
A statement issued by the NPP, hours after the incident, said the NPP vice presidential candidate “was travelling to the Ashanti Region when two of the tyres of the vehicle he was travelling in, exploded 15 minutes into the journey. The vehicle flipped over, veered off the road, rolling over a few times.”
Dr Bawumiah was flown to Accra for medical treatment and doctors say “his condition is good”.
“He's being observed in hospital and it is hoped that he will be discharged within 24 hours," the statement further stated.
Dr Bawumiah was travelling with three other persons – his aide Kwabena Boadu, his bodyguard Tanko, and his driver Emmanuel - none of whom sustained “any life-threatening injuries".
“They are also responding to treatment..." the statement added.
