Following the graphic.com.gh report that “the Second Lady Samira blacks out in mid-address at Dodowa,” Mrs Bawumia has taken to Facebook to say thank you to all those whose timely intervention helped to save her life. 

“I am grateful to the professionals present, for their timely intervention after I succumbed to the heat at the conference venue. Thank you all for the well-wishes,” she said hours after Tuesday's reported accident.

According to the graphic, “ the opening ceremony of the 17th Biennial Delegates Congress, of the Ghana Registered Nurses and Midwives Association (GRNMA) at Dodowa.., came to an abrupt end, due to the inability of the keynote Speaker, Mrs Samira Bawumia to continue with her address.”

Having requested for water during her delivery “she complained of dizziness and was momentarily seen going down.”

The report added that “her aides and security detail rushed to hold her and administered the necessary first aid whilst the perimeter was cordoned off.

“Mrs Bawumia was cordoned off and later conveyed to one of the vehicles before the convoy moved out of the hotel,” the graphic recounted.
