You can trap or force me to accept money and latter video me and say that I’m corrupt.”
“If Anas wanted to do an investigative work, they are rules he should follow, there is a difference between investigating a an alleged corruption which the person is caught in doing but not for him [Anas] to have rather initiated the process like he allegedly bribe the judges and capture them with his cameras, It’s not allowed by the law, it is not proper, we must not encourage it.”
“Kwasi Nyantakyi did no wrong, we all use the President’s name to eat, if I get the opportunity, I will use the president’s name to eat. We call them lobbyist and we all do same.”
