Chairman Atito ended his speech by charging the leaders of the two groups to use their logistics provided efficiently and also told the teeming supporters of the party to continue to repose confidence in the NPP government and retain the government come December 7, 2020.

"I will urge you to campaign vigorously, I will urge you to have confidence in Akufo-Addo-led government and support the agenda Four More for Nana and First Time for Bonzoh K and I know Bonzoh K is going to win the Ellembelle seat for the first time for we the NPP so let us all support Bonzoh K to win", he emphasized.
