Speaking at the party's unity walk in Kumasi in the Ashanti Region, General Mosquito as he is affectionately called claimed Nana Addo in the 2016 elections promised Ghanaian youths marriage.

"Now you know what is coming," he asked rethorically. "I won't talk about it. Nana Addo says men will marry men, and women will marry women," he said.

But the NPP communicator in response said it is only someone who is into the abuse of the drug who will claim Nana Addo is in the process of legalizing homosexuality.

He stated that "It is not true, Nana Addo will not do such a thing. If not Tramadol abuse who will say such a thing? If not someone who is a known abuser of Tramadol how on earth can you make such a claim? He has overly abused the drug and he is going about engaging in tramadol talk. He has overdosed Tramadol and is suffering the side effects and saying such things."

He also challenged him to prove where Akufo-Addo made such a statement.
