“My son was not a rowdy or noisy person, you will barely see him at places with a lot of crowd but his liked to argue about football so you would find him there”, she said in Twi.
She further explained that but for her husband's business of engaging in politics, her innocent son would not have even gone to the collation centre for any activity.
As readers would recall, on December 7, a misunderstanding ensued over the results when it was declared that the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP’s) Martin Adjei Mensah Korsah had won against Mr. Beyere of the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
This went as far as compelling the Electoral Commission to declare the final presidential results without including that of the Techiman South Constituency.
