“Is it that there are totally different units of guidelines for Ghanaians?; that should you’re an NDC individual the president sees you as a hassle maker?”, he quizzed again.
However, Mr. Quashie concurred the president has the right to criticise any Ghanaian whose actions flout the laws of the land and has the tendency to jeopadise our collective peace but, cannot pick and choose which one to criticise. To him, that is unfair, unacceptable and doesn’t befit a president.
He argued that the NDC members were at the former President’s office to embark on a clean up exercise and it had nothing to do with violence, which the president chose to criticise.
