Mr Eric Amofa said in one – on – one interview with Local Chairman on Okwawu fm’s ‘Ghana Te Sen’ morning show today April 28, 2020, that there have been calls from his opponent's camp that indicating that he is young and has more years ahead to contest for the seat and therefore should rescind his decision for now.
Mr Amofa replied his opponents that becoming an MP has nothing to do with age but the competency and the capability of that person to turns around for good.
He lamented the poor rate of development of the area urging the delegates to give him the mandate to unite the party and lobby for massive developmental projects for the area.
