If I talk about transforming Ghana what are the policy proposals I will make in order to transform Ghana, if I talk about building strong parties, parties that are vehicles for good governance how am I going to do that, those are the areas they asked me.''

However, candidates to be vetted today includes Professor Joshua Alabi, John Dramani Mahama, Sylvester Mensah, Goosie Tanoh and Spio Garbrah.
