“After the supreme court ruling, we went into retreat to seek the face of God concerning the future of the party and God revealed to us that as part of the repackaging and rebranding of the party for the 2016 elections, Fred Oware shall be chosen as the national chairman under whose chairmanship the party will win power”.
