He noted that though the sadden demise of Jake is worrying – he hope that it will build ‘collapsed’ bridges in the party to form a united front ahead of the 2016 polls.
“We will work hard to acknowledge him in the coming elections. Jake reached a stage that NPP must always consult him on elections issues. We will miss him, we will miss him,” he said on NEAT FM’s morning show 'Ghana Montie'.
Adding that – “His death will be a unifier in the party.”
