“After listening to the leaked tape, we’ve realized that people have wicked intentions. So, the Judge who is handling this case we know she will use her discretion to deal with this case. We know she is knowledgeable and will do the right thing by law. We’ve not said Ato Forson is guilty or innocent, but looking at the issues around the case, we feel sorry for Ato Forson and we in the Central Region are sad. But we are confident that Ato Forson will come out clean, that is our prayer.”

He further disclosed that the regional executives are committed to realization their objective of winning 20 Parliamentary seats in the Region come December 7 election.

“If the NPP Central Regional executives can’t work or they fear us the NDC regional executives, they should not harass us because we are working very hard to win the elections. Our aim is to realize the Agenda 20 seats target and Awutu Senya East seat is part of the Agenda and we shall wrestle the seats.”
