He advised the aspirants to be circumspect in their utterances on the campaign trail.

He said the NDC should emerge stronger and more focused after the elections to wrestle power from the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) at the 2020 elections.

Rashid Tanko said the NDC deserved to win the 2020 elections because of the NPP government’s economic mismanagement.
