Mr John Buckman, the Presiding Member of the STMA said « Honestly speaking, I am surprisingly disappointed and too devastated to comment. In brief, my expectations were not met. »
« For me I think democracy has spoken and as Ghanaians we should all work as one people to get the best for mother Ghana and generations unborn. We should all pledge allegiance to the 1992 Constitution of the Republic of Ghana »,Mr Isaac Aidoo, OGP focal Person , Sekondi/Takoradi pointed out.
