Ghana's former head of state went on to say that believes two years is a long time to suspend the officials, and that the party's constitutions does not provide for that. Former presidet Kufour said he hoped that "good sense" would prevail.

Of course, I think being on suspension for over two years is too long. I think our constitution doesn’t provide for that, it didn’t envisage the General Secretary of the party to be absent from his job for two years, it’s not there but I hope that good sense will prevail, I mean I’m happy with myself, I thank God for the heart that I have, I’m very content,” he said.
