The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has lost two of its supporters who participated in a meeting with former president John Mahama over the weekend. The deceased were part of some party faithful who travelled to Goaso in the Brong Ahafo Region to support Mahama in his campaign. However, reports suggest they died on Sunday after being involved in a motor crash on their way back home.
A statement from Mahama’s office confirmed the death of the two, saying the NDC flagbearer aspirant is saddened by the event. The statement, which was signed by James Agyenim Boateng, said Mahama will call on the bereaved families to mourn with them. “The former President is deeply saddened by the news of the demise of the two unnamed persons, who were said to have actively participated in last Sunday’s meeting.
“It is shocking to know that we lost two very enthusiastic supporters in an accident on Sunday night. They were young, vibrant and very helpful during the meeting. My prayers are with their families and friends in this very difficult time,” sections of the statement read.
