Below is his full post on Instagram;
“I have just expressed my concerns in camera to the party top hierarchy regarding the unfortunate incident yesterday, purported to have been instigated by same. An expectation of a non-existent political capital in this Menzgold scenario would result in a shot of the campaign in the foot.”
“We are dealing with a commercial challenge and we’re very resolute, committed and focused to overcome. Vitally, both sides should respectfully commit to bread & butter issues-based campaign in appealing to voters. The Ghanaian political culture has greatly changed and improved. #Ghanashallprosper”
