In an interview on Accra-based radio station, Citi FM, he said the current welcomes decision register is ridden with errors.

He said "Of course we have had difficulties with the integrity of our register. We have evidence of individuals whose membership of the NDC is doubtful on the register. We have had complaints from people to the effect that their names have been omitted from the register. So it is a fact that the register has challenges so there is a need for some work to be done on this register."
