"Even though six(6) other candidates are contesting John Mahama he will sail his victory with over 90% votes, even if they are made the electoral commissioners to supervise the primaries or better still dashed with some votes before the 23rd February elections they can't win, this e prepare him for the flagstaff house again" he stated.
The former constituency secretary advised John Mahama to focus on his policies and programs for Ghana when he finally get sworn in as the President of Ghana on 7th January 2021.
"Former President Mahama at this time should focus much of his attention to his policies and programmes that he will put in place to redeem Ghanaians from this hardship economy Akufo Addo- Bawumia government has sent us to when he is finally sworn inn in January 2021 to usher him and the NDC back to the Flagstaff house".
Mr. Apetsea further advice the former President to involve all his contestants in his government to also bring on board their intellectuals which will help him (the President) to reunite the ranks and files of the party after the Presidential Primaries and assign roles to all the other six candidates contesting in order for Ghanaians to have trust in him and the NDC.
The former Constituency Secretary who is leasing his boot to lead the party in the Upper Denkyira East Constituency as a Parliamentary Candidate called on John Mahama and the party executives to set put up a team to work with the Constituency and Branch Executives to elect good parliamentary candidates to lead the party in the constituencies.
He appealed that the party should adopt and support such parliamentary candidates duly elected with logistics and should not be left to their fate especially the orphan constituencies believing that the party will secure majority seats in parliament to make governance easy for the incoming President John Dramani Mahama government.
Mr. Apatsea Isaac Kwasi who has vowed to put the youth in the center of his administration when elected as a parliamentarian to serve the people of the Upper Denkyira East in the central region of Ghana.

"if delegates appreciate my ten points adopted to transform our constituency and finally vote for me the Constituency will see difference".
