The Minister has been the MP for Takoradi since 2008. He won the seat in the  2016 elections with 70% of the votes.

According to the Minster, his hard work in the area will give him victory.

“We promised and we delivered. We have been consistent and shown that we are not liars but when we promise we deliver on those promises,” the Minister said.

Speaking to Citi News after voting at the Robert Mensah polling station in Takoradi, the minister said he is also optimistic the NPP will also increase its seats in the Western Region to 15 seats. Currently, the Party holds 13 of the 17 seats in the region. 

“Our target is 15, but we know that we can get (an) extra two… The other two are Wassa East and Ellembelle. These are the other two that we need to struggle and get,” said the Minister.
