But in a related development, he has stated that, he will not apologize after calls from Ghanaians to retract the statement.
“It is rather me they are accusing… they say I should come and apologise, the one who has been shot. I should come and apologise? Meanwhile, you won’t condemn the one who shot. We will not tolerate this in Ghana”.
But as soon as their preferred [NPP] government comes into power, everything is right: ‘family and friends [government]’ is okay as long as they are qualified. You think NPP will be in power forever,” he added.
We are serving them notice. They shall never deploy such a force in any election in Ghana again. We will resist it. You haven’t seen armed men running away before? When the power of the people comes after you, you will run. This is the ‘all die be die’ philosophy at work. We won’t accept ‘all die be die’ in this country.”
