Fellow Akatamansonians, it has been an amazing and exceptionally unique honor to have served the NDC under such intense, challenging and heated political season (2015/2016), in one of Ghana’s hottest communities (Kubori), so far as the quest for capturing power is a concern.

I appreciate the opportunities I have been given during this period not forgetting of some impeccable professional guidance and support I have received from some few individuals within the party.

Distinguished members of the NDC. For several reasons best known to me, I wish to humbly resign from my position as Deputy Communication Officer for Yagaba/Kubori Constituency.
