The NPP firebrand who at a point was visibly angry at Nyankumasi a suburb of his constituency, asked the audience to record what he was saying and play to the hearing of the national hierarchy of the party that he has had enough of them and it was time for both to part ways.
“The way NPP has used me, when they were done they separated themselves and allowed all the disgrace to come on me. I am opening up today to you people, you can record and play to them. If I observe how I have lived my life and the way the NPP wants to treat me, I am calling it quits…I won’t stand again”, he insisted.
