Remember the first Lady who is the daughter of this land was here not recently, her husband followed and now the chief of staff. It was really refreshing to have him around. Just come to BA and see what is happening there now as we speak. Everybody is shouting JM Toaso (meaning JM continue). Everywhere you pass it all about JM as if to say the NDC is the only party is the region. I can tell you with all certainty that Brong Ahafo has become s strong hold of the NDC”

The meeting according to him afforded these groups the opportunity to have their special interest and concerns have been addressed.
“The chief of staff met Chiefs, professionals, students and all the people who mattered to sell the Mahama vision and agenda to them. I can tell you and it was written all over on their faces they appreciate the interaction with the chief of staff. I am happy this will be replicated in all other regions”
