“Bono is on his (Mahama’s) heart because his wife is from this place, his chairman is also from this here; in fact, all the strong people behind him are from Bono. So, if we support him well, we are going to make progress in our development.

“… we have had vice presidents from different parts of the country… I want to plead with my father (Mahama) that his time around he should choose one (a vice president) from our region, Bono,” she said.

He urged the people of the Bono Region to vote ‘wisely’ and vote for someone who has the Bono Region at heart and would help transform the region.
