Speaking with Ghnewsnow, Mr. Afriyie Ankrah who is vying for the General Secretary position in the upcoming internal General Elections acknowledged the sterling leadership Mr. Asiedu Nketiah has offered the party but stated that he will offer his own unique brand of leadership if voted into office as the next General Secretary of the party.

Baako in an interview.
