According to the lawmaker, a group of senior citizens in North Tongu on Wednesday, 10 July 2019 volunteered to pick nomination forms for him insisting that he steps forward for a third term bid as MP for the constituency.
“I am deeply touched by the kind gesture from our wise elders and what is clearly a show of confidence in what we have collectively achieved these past few years. I hereby confirm that I shall heed the overwhelming calls to seek re-election,” Mr Ablakwa said in a Facebook post.
Mr Ablakwa assured the people of North Tongu of his “continuous dedication to duty and devotion to our general welfare.”
Mr Ablakwa must first win the NDC’s parliamentary primaries to lead the constituency into the 2020 elections.
