In a series of on his Facebook wall, he wrote: "Listen to the Roads and Highways Ministry fumbling on Adom Fm. He is a total disaster and a failure. Running a ministry isn’t child’s play and propaganda. Dissolve the government like KNUST Governing Council".

"The government heard the complaints about the accidents on the Madina-Adentan road and did nothing until the people demonstrated and there were casualties including loss of lives and injuries inflicted by the police on people who were drawing attention to their plight.

"Can we call for the dissolution of the government?" he asked.
