According to him, the grassroots has spoken, and he has accepted the declared results in good faith.
In his acceptance speech, he congratulated the election committee and called for unity towards victory in 2024.
He also pledged his support to work and campaign for the party if they win the 2024 general elections.
He further declared that the showdown he promised the NPP would be translated into the general elections.
