“Let me take this opportunity to express our sincere gratitude to the constituency executives, the council of elders, patrons, campaign team, electoral area coordinators, polling station executives, volunteer groups and all the electorate for their dedication, sacrifices, love and commitment towards the campaign.
“I will say that a good battle was well fought but we lost and as the saying goes, “the falling down of a hero is not the end of his life,” Mr Bosompem said.
