“What I want to say to the people of Central Region is that I came to seek for their mandate to govern the country and they’ve all witnessed the good work that have I done.

“All the promises that I gave to the people, I have done most of them. So I’m certain that person who they can entrust their faith in to deliver for them.

“If I have delivered then it means you have to trust me again if I say I will continue to deliver on my word.

“Central Region stood firmly behind me in the 2016 election so I want you to continue to support me with massive votes come this December to ensure outright victory for the NPP to continue to govern the people to see to the improvement in the lives of the citizenry.”
