He insisted none of the aspirants should engage in flamboyant campaigning, stressing the country is in distress. He therefore reiterated that due to the dire economic situation in the country, no aspirant should waste resources since the bigger task is in the 2020 elections.
The election to choose a leader of the largest opposition party will therefore be held in December 7 this year.

He further announced the postponement of the regional elections from August 25 to September 1 this year.
Touching on the declaration of support for former president Mahama by some Members of Parliament, he stressed that the MPs did no wrong since the declaration of support did not come from the parliamentary caucus but some individual MPs.

Persons who have declared their intention to contest the presidential slot include 2nd Deputy Speaker of Parliament Alban Bagbin, former Vice Chancellor of UPSA Prof. Joshua Alabi and former CEO of NHIA Sylvester Mensah.
