Regarding his appointment, he declined to comment on it but when he was asked about comments from members of his party about his appointment, he responded: "Let them say whatever they want. When I get to parliament, I would say what I feel."

Questioned on claims that he is not a paid-up member of the NDC, the Citizen Vigilante retorted: "What I am supposed to say should I reply? It does not look reasonable.”

"Wait and when I get to parliament they may ask that question then I will answer. I wait till President has sent the nomination to parliament and parliament will decide negatively or positively”, he added.
