announced him as winner over Former
Minister for Gender, Children and Social Protection, Nana Oye Lithur, he
observed that this was one of his toughest contest as the vanquished gave him a
run for his money.

primary was one of his toughest in any political contest yet he was able to
sail through envisaging that his victory will be replicated in the 2020 general
elections in order to snatch the seat from the NPP.
“With all honesty this
primaries was more difficult and keener than what I had anticipate would happen
in the general elections…so if with the help of God we have been able to go
through this one, I am very confident that come December 7, 2020 would be
declared winner and Member of Parliament (MP) elect for Adenta Constituency”,
According to him, once the
primary is over it is time for the party to come together and wrestle the seat
from the New Patriotic Party (NPP) adding that work starts.
“We are serving notice to
the NPP that the journey to recapture the Adenta seat has started tonight and I
like to thank all of you”, he added.
