“My Brother and Comrade Boamah Otokunor called me a few minutes ago to congratulate me. Very gracious of him. I had earlier told him yesterday that I was proud of his competitive campaigning and I repeated same this morning. I reassured him of my complete readiness to work closely with him to make our party greater and stronger,” Fiifi Kwetey wrote on Facebook.

“Anyone who emerges today emerges because he is the one supposed to be. If anyone is preparing rooms to find excuses, I will not be one of those.

“I believe at the end of the day those who emerge did so rightly,” he told Metro TV’s Henry Akwasi Badu.

Fiifi Kwetey noted that “their wins are the voice of the masses and the will of the voters.”
