” Fights in politics over the years made me realized a lot. I left NDC because of some sort of fights all over, I had wanted to join a party which would be pleased with, reason I joined NPP but same happened there. The young ones seem not to appreciate we the oldies when we identify ourselves for advice purpose.”
