“I have what it takes to lead the party’s victory in 2024, the coming election is a watershed as our opponent NDC want to come back and we also want to maintain power”, he added.
He stated that the party needed a strong leadership which could engage Ministers and appointees of the party to find solutions to the current crisis for victory 2024.
