RE-SUPPORT TO RETAIN MY SEAT
‘’With reference to our last meeting dated 18th August, 2016, I wish to know the decision so far on my request to work with you to ensure that your party wins the presidential election in the Builsa-South Constituency.
There is no gainsaying the fact that I am a popular in the constituency and have mass followers having represented my people twice in parliament. As I stated at that meeting, I need your support so as to enable me retain my seat considering the treatment I am receiving at the hands of the National Democratic Congress (NDC). And I want to state here that I am still committed to my promise to feed with information about how the NDC intends to rig this year’s elections so that you can put in place measure to scuttle their plans.
In this regard I will appreciate if we could meet in the earliest possible time to sort things out since we have few weeks to the elections. I will let you know what I want you to do for me, and I will equally give you some information that will help you win the presidency. I’m looking forward to having fruitful response from you.’’
