"Some of you 'Honourables' are unbelievably 'smart'" he said.

He added: "Just render a public unqualified apology to me and stop talking to me in private or go ahead to impeach. You lied to damage my reputation but I stood firm, challenged and exposed you. In whatever I do, Allah is my guide and guard."

Last week, 31 out of the 58-member assembly signed a petition to impeach the Mayor.

The members stated that the Mayor is mismanaging the "Assembly’s meagre resources by paying his self-appointed personal assistants each at GH¢1,400".

They accused the Mayor of "constituting and paying 61 members non-functional Task Force which cost the Assembly GH¢9, 150."

In the petition, the Members said the Mayor has been "disregarding and disrespecting Assembly Members."
