“Dr. Elebulu is of no match to me in the upcoming parliamentary elections,” he asserted, citing the National Democratic Congress (NDC)’s strong standing in the constituency and his personal popularity among constituents.

“Can you imagine if Tongu Chief Union says that a particular politician will not be given the green light to campaign, that is the end of your career, and if you are not careful you will go into early retirement, like the way my brother Eleblu will be retiring after the next elections“, he said.
