The Tarkoradi lawmaker in an interview noted that in the 2008 Presidential election when there was a lot of tension in the country, the late UN former boss was at the background working things out to prevent any chaos.

Again in 2016 election the late Kofi Annan played a role for us to have peaceful transition when there was some tension in the country as the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) was calming they were in a comfortable lead.
