According to Starr News? Isaac Bediako Justice, many known figures in the minority caucus have openly come to the constituency to campaign for their leader. Notable among those who have visited the constituency are the Manhyia MP Mathew Opoku Prempeh, Isaac Asiamah, Oforikrom MP Elizabeth Agyemang among others.
