Nketia, popularly known as General Mosquito, said this in a radio interview with Despite Media's Okay 101.7FM after the shocking demise of Sir John, whose real name is Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie.
This comes as a surprise to some considering Sir John was a staunch member and former general secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), which is NDC's biggest opposition.
