Speaking on Citi FM "The Big Issue" on Saturday, the former MP noted: “Why should a Ghanaian go to bed angry? Why shouldn’t a Ghanaian get a place to lay his or her head?

"Why shouldn’t a Ghanaian wear a cloth that he or she wants to wear? These are the main issues. From Accra to Bolgatanga, I don’t think we have to spend five hours.

"Why are we spending 13 to 15 hours? If you look at the western world, they think about the people, how to make life easier for them. So in governance you have to make life easier for your people.”

Namoale said he lost his seat to the NPP because of propaganda.

“It was propaganda that toppled me, but the truth is always the truth,” he said.
