I am confident that together we shall lead the NPP to break the eight for all Ghanaians to realize the full potential of our dear country,” he pledged.
The Chairman of Parliament’s Defence and Interior Committee extended an appreciation “to the 132 delegates who braved unprecedented difficulties to vote for me to put me in second place and thereby qualify me to compete in the main primaries on 4th November, I express my heartfelt gratitude to you and God’s guidance over you.”
He also reminded his fans of the larger contest ahead in November saying the battle has just begun, adding that the aim is to break the 8 to consolidate the gains of the New Patriotic Party.
