The chiefs however endorsed President Mahama for another four years. They appealed to government to ensure that the December 7 polls are peaceful.

Vice President Amissah-Arthur ended his visit with a mini rally at the Haatso Yam market with the call on the people to turn out in their numbers and vote massively for President Mahama and Nurudeen Mohammed. He described as false claims that the development projects in the constituency were lobbied for by the sitting NPP MP Adwoa Safo.
