Super said the Honorable member should be appreciated for the good work he has done in the transport sector (Maritime) because every hard work deserves appreciation.
However, Super added that even though Hon. Kwame Owusu is working as expected of him which is a good thing but he does not support him on how he is working on his personal interest and using state fund if really what he is accused of is true.
