“Nana Akufo Addo has 48 month. We already spent 4 month putting together a government, by the time he finishes, we have barely 36month so let us give him the chance. No NPP candidate is going to succeed if we do not put all of our forces behind Nana Akufo Addo to succeed and live a legacy. Even if we bring back President Kufour he can’t win the elections” he said.

“What am saying is that, all of us as Ghanaians citizens, we have a role to play, our political system, this what we got together from 1992. It has come to a stage of maturity where there is risk and we don’t want politic to go back onto the street. So we the political class should make sure that politics succeed. It is in the interest of NDC and all the other political parties that we give Nana a full chance, 36 month, 40 month to implement his agenda get his people selected go behind and implement,” he emphasized.
