Eulogizing the new MCE, the Regional Minister who is also the MP for the Area revealed that when it comes politics in Ayawaso Central, the newly Confirmed MCE is ahead of him stressing that the latter once challenged the former MP Sheikh I.C Quaye in a Parliamentary primaries and challenged he (Henry Quartey) too in previous primaries, indicating that Archibald has sacrificed.
“ If Archbald had listened to some of us that he should serve Sheikh till he leaves , today he would have been the MP but he didn’t.
Even when he lost against me and he later became Regional NADMO, anything I needed, he made sure I get it. He has really served the Party.
Today, I am happy for him that he is the new MCE for Ayawaso Central. All the advice I want to give to you all is that patience pays”, Hon. Henry Quartey emphasized.
