“We want to continue to thank Ghanaian farmers and the friends of Dr. Akoto who pulled themselves together to make it possible this morning that the forms for the contest have been picked at the party’s headquarters.
“Team Akoto says thank you very much and God bless you for the show of love and support. From here, we are taking the forms to the campaign head office, where the team will be sending the forms to him to hear his side.
“These farmers are across the country, and they have come out boldly to say they want to encourage Dr. Akoto. To the delegates, the farmers, the good people of Ghana, we say thank you.”
Dr. Amuzu added that: “Farmers across the country indicated they wanted to do this, and he did not deny them the opportunity. Delegates and friends as well came together to pull resources as a sign of love and support for him.
