He said "Need I say more? We all know who was used to relegate me to the background. I don’t need to mention a name for you to decipher who it was, but you are quite aware whom I am referring to. As a matter of fact, I was made redundant."

Describing the New Patriotic Party (NPP) as deceptive, he admonished party faithful to unite and attach a lot of importance to the grassroots and branches.

According to him, the branches are the bedrock of the party hence a lot of seriousness must be given to that sector.

Although the NDC has not opened nominations yet, some bigwigs and other members have shown their interest to lead the party in 2020.

However, posters of former Amissah-Arthur, Dr. Ekow Spio Garbrah, Mr. Slyvester Mensah, Prof. Joshua Alabi, Kwesi Ahwoi as a presidential aspirant of the NDC have emerged.
