Hafiz Bin Salih, the NPP youth executive who collapsed while delivering his speech at the partyï¿½s ongoing National Delegates conference in Kumasi has returned to the Baba Yara Sports stadium to participate in the conference.
Hafiz, the NPPï¿½s Second Regional Vice Chairman of the Upper West Region was billed to deliver a message on behalf of the youth wing of the party.
He had barely uttered a word when he collapsed inexplicably behind the podium.
He was subsequently rushed to the Baba Yara Stadium clinic where he received medical attention.
Narrating his ordeal to Citifmonline.com on his return from the hospital, Hafiz said he was not sure what actually happened to him but he suspected that the stress from the activities leading up to the conference had a huge toll on him.
According Hafiz, but for the timely intervention of personnel of ambulance services and the staff of the first aid centre at the stadium, he would have lost his life.
He added that although Doctors at the stadium clinic failed to tell him what exactly the problem was, he was given oxygen to aid his breathing.
Hafiz said his speech was going to centre on party unity and the need for regional balance in the NPP.
He holds the view that for the NPP to reclaim power in 2012, former President Kufuor and former Vice President Aliu Mahama must be pivotal in the partyï¿½s strategic planning for the elections.
To send his message across, Hafiz says he would organize a press on Monday and also get the message published in the media.
Meanwhile voting for the election of the new set of National executives for the NPP is currently underway.
Prior to that the candidates for the various positions took turns to tell the over 4500 delegates why they should be part of the new leadership of the NPP.
The Voting started around 1620hrs GMT with Former President Kufuor having the privilege of casting the first ballot.
Voting is expected to travel very deep into the night while results are likely to be declared Sunday afternoon.
