Speaking to the press after his vetting the MP for Akwatia contituency raised a lot of issues ranging from not being afraid of contest. ” I am not afraid of contest, I have contested election since my school days and I have always been a leader all my life. I’ve contested election at the university level, at the secondary level, at the party level and at the national level, so I am not afraid of contest”.

The member of parliament who doubles as a deputy minister lamented that, he does not have any problem with anybody and for that matter he’s not going to respond to all the insults and accusations levelled against him.

“The one who represent the people and wants to ensure that the people he/she represents are united does not have to insult nor fight”. He added by advicing his supporters not to insult back whenever they hear anybody raising insults against him (Baba Jamal).

“I told my supporters at the launch of my campaign that, if you love me, and you hear people insult me, pass by, that is what i want my supporters to do because insult does not pay in politics, it is only humility, understanding and enumeration that pays.

I am a deputy minister of state and what else can I fight people for”, he questioned. “I should be part of the uniting force not those fighting and dividing, but interestingly that’s what people are provoking me to do” he said.

It is a foregone conclusion and the story on the grounds tells Baba Jamal that he will win the primary election on November 7.

He adviced all members of the party to come together as one and fight against the opposition in December 2016 after the primaries.
