According to him, his social media presence is ‘quite strong’ that is why people think he is doing better than his colleagues.
He added that his past ministerial role has also benefitted him in many ways.
“To be fair to my colleagues, I have served in government before. In my first term as MP, I was the deputy Minister for Education. And Education was a priority to President Mahama… Because of that position, I’ve been able to lobby for some of these projects for my constituency… When you have served as a deputy minister before, you are also able to get some networks and opportunities,” he said
He also said his constituency has a lot of catching up to do that is why he is very aggressive when it comes to development.
“If you look at the poverty levels, you will see that North Tongu is way behind and we need a lot of catching up, a lot of affirmative action. That is why right from the get-go I have been very aggressive”
