In a statement copied to the media, Mr Woyome said it had been great working with the good people of the constituency as their Member of Parliament.
“I thank you from the bottom of my heart. It has been great working with you and serving you over the years – am grateful for the support and trust you reposed in me over the years of service – I will always cherish the memories of experience of serving as your representative in the parliament of Ghana for four consecutive terms ending January 7, 2025,” he said.
Mr Woyome said, he accepted the decision of delegates to allow for someone else to take over the role he was currently playing and said it was time for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the constituency to unite and work together to capture power from the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the 2024 general elections.
