Mike Oquaye Jnr, a parliamentary aspirant for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Dome Kwabenya Constituency, has expressed confidence in unseating the incumbent Sarah Adwoa Safo.

Mr Oquaye said when he wins the primaries, he hopes Ms Safo will put his image on her gate as a sign of support for him during the campaign towards the December polls.

The Ghanaian High Commissioner to India, during the last primaries of the NPP, lost to Adwoa Safo.

Mike Oquaye said after that defeat, he posted the images of Adwoa Safo on his gate to signify unity and wished that she will replicate same after this year’s polls.

“When I lost the last time the very next day still with my wounds I put my opponent's picture on my gate for all my followers to understand that the elephant is the winning symbol."

"So, this time also, I hope when by the grace of God, if I win, my opponent will also put my picture on the wall and say to the followers that the elephant is the winning symbol,” Mr Oquaye told journalists.
