We are talking about legal matters; you can get excited and run yourself horse on radio and say you’ve sacked Koku Anyidoho just for the propaganda purposes of it but they are other deeper ends of it. And if the idea was to run a propaganda bench and get me to get angry and say I’ve resigned from the NDC … I remain a staunch stoic of the NDC, it doesn’t lie on the tongue of one person to say he has sacked me,” Koku Anyidoho is reported to have said in an interview on Asaase Breakfast Show.
