The wife of the Vice President of Ghana, Samira Bawumia reportedly passed out during the opening ceremony of the 17th Biennial Delegates Congress, of the Ghana Registered Nurses and Midwives Association (GRNMA) yesterday, November 26.
A Graphic Online reported that after the opening addresses and a welcome address by the Chief Nursing Officer for Greater Accra, Madam Cecilia Obeng Peprah, it was the turn of Mrs Bawumia who had been sitting since the beginning of the programme to deliver her keynote address.
Around 12 midday, Mrs Bawumia mounted the dais to deliver her address but a few minutes into it, she requested for water.
After drinking the water, she complained of dizziness and was momentarily seen going down.
The website added that her aides and security detail rushed to hold her and administered the necessary first aid whilst the perimeter was cordoned off.
A stretcher was quickly drawn from one of the vehicles in the Second Lady’s convoy.
Mrs Bawumia was cordoned off and later conveyed to one of the vehicles before the convoy moved out of the hotel.
We understand she’s fine now and in stable condition.
