There is no looser here, we only have winners in a family contest.
The new leaders/executives that would emerge in this elections, I wish to also encourage you to bring on board your competitors and the fallen executives to tap their experience for a better NPP in Savannah region.
It is my prayer and hope that God shall order the processes of this election and May the best aspirant win.
