Mrs Owusu-Ekuful while speaking on Metro TV’s Good Evening Ghana yesterday [Tuesday] said,  “If it hadn’t been his [Mr. Afoko’s] posture there would have been continuing efforts to see how best to solve the great differences.”

“He has painted himself into some kind of corner and has made it impossible for anybody to reach out to him. And that goes for all the other little issues lingering on in the various constituencies. The party is bigger than anyone of us and if the party were to succeed in winning power, we will all benefit,” Mrs Owusu-Ekuful stated.

She earlier in the interview commended Kwabena Agyepong for his current attitude after his suspension.
