The chief emphatically assured the NPP of victory in the Boli traditional area. “The people of Boli assure you that we will not be lured into a party of no vision who can only be remembered with hardship, we will not be lured to exchange our color TV for a visionless black and white TV party who only believe that graduates after spending resources in education should become Okada riders. We will give NPP 100% of our votes” he declared.
