He expressed confidence of enjoying the trust and love of the people which they have shown to his late father and that it will translate to victory.
His confidence he said “is much stronger when the MDA partner the NPP is extending to him full support. He also said that this speaks in itself that the government is solidly strong and will be stronger if he wins.”
