Mr Bonzo assured of working with the other aspirants for the good of the party and for victory in 2020.
“… I have been playing the singular role in the previous elections but this time I have three more. I will bring everybody on board. The ultimate is to win the seat. Until we have won this seat, we will never relent” he reiterated.
