“When you enter Parliament as a Member of Parliament, usually the first terms are used to study activities of the House. So the second terms are the ones for doing the real work. So I knew that in the 2020 elections, Ekow Hayford was going to win the seat, and he was one of the MPs I would have relied upon to help me in government but God knows best.”
