Speaking on a local radio station, A1 Radio in the Upper east region monitored by, Mr. Ayariga said Ghanaians have been oppressed in voicing out their concerns for fear of victimization.

"This is the president who has no value of what is happening in Ghana .This was the president who fought for human rights justice, today he is a democratic tyrant …he doesn’t listen to anybody ,everybody should be mute ,you talk they come after you. We now live in the culture of silence where Ghanaians cannot voice out what is happening around them,” he said bitterly

That is why I will always speak for the people of this country…I’m not a coward,” he stressed.
