At a brief ceremony at the constituency office, Mr Owusu-Akyaw said the NPP needed to mobilise resources to enable party agents give off their best in the monitoring exercise.
He noted that the party needed to retain power in 2020 so as to enable the President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to complete the transformational agenda he has set in place in his first term.
