Assin North By-Election: Bono East NPP Chairman (Game Changer) In Critical Condition After Motorcycle Accident


The Bono East Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Ibrahim Baba Bukari popularly known as ‘Game Changer’ is reportedly in critical condition following a motorcycle accident while campaigning for the upcoming June 27 by-election in the Assin North Constituency.

The incident occurred in Assin Bereku in the Assin North District of the Central Region.

On Monday, June 12, a speeding vehicle reportedly collided with a motorcycle that Chairman Bukari was riding, resulting in severe injuries.

Due to the critical condition, he has been airlifted from St. Francis Xavier Hospital to Accra for further medical treatment.

Stephen Asamoah, the NPP constituency secretary for Assin North, expressed concerns about possible foul play in the accident.

According to Asamoah, Chairman Bukari was en route to campaign in Assin Akomfede when the incident took place. He explained that while riding his bike, he was struck by a black salon car, and the occupants of the vehicle fled the scene, leaving him unattended.

The party officials suspect that the accident may have been a deliberate act targeting the Bono East Regional chairman, who has been actively engaged in campaigning for several weeks.

“Our brother, the Bono East Regional chairman has been with us for several weeks campaigning. But you know the way the towns are scattered you need a motorbike to move. He decided to go to Assin Akomfede to campaign but unfortunately, some men in a black salon car hit and left him unattended,” he stated.

The Assin North by-election comes after an order by the Supreme Court for Parliament to expunge the name of James Gyakye Quayson, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Member of Parliament (MP) for the constituency, as a sitting MP.

The NPP elects Charles Opoku to lead them to victory, whiles James Gyakye Quayson will be on the ballot for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) again.

Meanwhile, the Ghana Police Service has announced that it has commenced an investigation into the accident involving the Bono East Regional Chairman of the ruling party, NPP.
