The accident comes at the back of a fatal motorbike accident which led to the death of his campaign manager -Alfred Koranteng Thursday.

The DCE recently filled his nomination to seek for reelection as Parliamentary Candidate for the third time in the Constituency, which has been occupied by NDC since 1992.

In 2012, Eugene Sackey was defeated by then incumbent Member of Parliament Joseph Sam Amankwanor by some 3,100 votes. Sackey however closed the gab to about 400 in the 2016 parliamentary and presidential election.

The DCE is therefore hopeful of winning the seat for the NPP in 2020 if given the nod as Parliamentary Candidate for the third time.
