The NPP has failed massively and the only party that is capable of delivering is the NDC. My focus to make the NDC a strong party to make it win the 2020 polls.’’
Reacting to the perceived claims by some individuals that the polls failed to elect voltarians, he said, the election was not organized on tribal lines but it was organized in a free and fair manner and candidates campaigned and went to seek the votes of delegates who decided at the congress to vote for the current crop of leaders.
