He said whiles on his way to address the meeting, Haruna Tia suddenly came up to him and questioned his authority to reconstitute the Elders.

He added: "I was going to address the meeting the President wanted to have with the people so when I was about to go and climb the story building, Harun Bees came to me and said, ‘look, I want to tell you, the selection you made’  change it, and I said what selection…He said Council of Patrons and Elders and I asked him why should I change it. I said why? After all, I have done the selection, not only me; we are regional executives so why should change it.

"That I don’t like Dagombas and I asked him those people I chose are they not Dagombas, before I realized he has given me blow in my chest. In fact, the young boys who were with me wanted to take action and I said no; if you love me, you love the party, you love Nana, forget it, let’s go and I went."

Bugri Naabu explained that "I just asked him is that the way we solve problem, thank you and I walked away. What will I say? because I didn’t want it to be seen that there is a problem because so many things were going on."

He noted that he didn’t hit the former chairman back because "by now he (Haruna) will have been dead and they will say that chairman Bugri has killed somebody. I won’t do it so I think I leave everything with the elders and the police."
