“I have retired from politics so I have put it in a box and hid it under water. So if someone says I am preparing to establish a political party it does not make sense at all. It is because of these lies I have retired from active politics. I do not feed on politics neither do I survive on that it is the rather other way round and I have vowed not to let that happen again. I don’t know anything about it…why will we at this age be thinking of going to establish a political party? Would we call it a party for the oldies or what?”, he quizzed.

“Where do you think is coming from, it is coming from within the NDC not from NPP. Small small boys behind the presidential candidate know how to run but do not know how to talk. No sensible party person will make such an issue public. They are solely responsible for the falsified information”, he observed. Solomon Kodjo/2019
