Delivering his victory message after the NDC's Constituency elections on Saturday, the 40-year-old Businessman said that was the surest way to save Ghana from the current economic doldrums and better the living conditions of the people.
Mr Gariba Adams called for an end to politics of personal attacks and internal wrangling, which would only go to tarnish the image of the Constituency and the Party.
