3 DCEs in critical condition after car crash

DGN Online has gathered that four District Chief Executives in the Northern Region have been involved in a car crash at Datoyili in the Northern Region.

They include Mion’s DCE, Mohammed Hashim Abdullah, Zabzugu , Ahmed Abukari Iddrisu, Gusheigu, Musah Issah and Bimbilla MCE, Abdulai Yaqoub.

The Mion, Gusheigu and Zabzugu DCEs who were rushed to the Tamale Teaching Hospital are accordingly in critical condition.

The Bimbilla MCE, Abdulai Yaqoub, is however in a stable condition.

The Northern Regional Minister, Salifu Saeed, who confirmed the incident to journalists, said the DCEs were on their way to the Upper West region for the launch of the Rearing for Food program by President Akufo-Addo.

According to him, the Metropolitan, Municipal and District Chief Executives were advised to avoid using long convoy to follow the President and so decided that four each would use a single vehicle and that the four DCEs used the vehicle of the Zabzugu DCE.

He indicated that on their way at Datoyili, a vehicle coming from Accra ran into their vehicle.

Mr. Saeed, however, stated that the condition of the DCEs have been stabled by doctors at the Tamale Teaching Hospital.
