After the NPP primaries on Saturday, June 20, 2020, about nine Chairmen and Vice-Chairmen of committees in Parliament lost their seats.
Adding his voice to the loss of the party’s big shots, he stressed elections were underpinned with either victory or defeat.
“Those of us in politics know that these things happen. We know, to use the famous words of our onetime General Secretary, we have to continue to fear delegates,” he said jokingly.
“But we remain firm, in our belief, that losing one election doesn’t mean the end of your political life.
“I am a living example and I urge all of us to get over our disappointments quickly and unite to go before the country,” he said.
