Ablekuma West MP Ursula Owusu-Ekuful has promised to support veteran actor Kofi Laing.

The MP paid a visit to the actor popularly known as Kohwe while on tour in the constituency ahead of the December 2020 eletions.

The Communications Minister stated that her team is ready to help and support the once vibrant entertainer.

“I assured him to hold on to life and be hopeful as some of us will continue to support and allow God to do his part. Ablekuma West da m’akoma so. You matter to me,” she wrote.
