Four District Chief Executives in the Northern region who were travelling to support the launching of a rural agriculture programme in Wa are currently in critical condition at the Tamale Teaching Hospital after they were involved in an accident, Starr News has learnt.

The DCE for Zabzugu -Ahmed Iddi Adakwah, Mion- Mohammed Hashim, Bimbila – Abdulai Yaqub and Gushegu -Mohammed Musah, are being prepared to be flown to Accra for further medical checks, sources revealed.

The four were in the same vehicle when a driver of a public vehicle veered off his lane and collided into them at Datoli near Tamale.

The Northern regional Minister has confirmed the development.

"Three of the DCE’s are in critical condition but the doctors are working on it. I’m happy to announce that the doctors have managed to stabilise them but I have directed that they are taken to Accra,” Regional Minister Salifu Saeed said.
