"This will be travesty of justice. This case must travel to the Law Court."

"Prempeh College should immediately boycott this competition. We have been the driving force behind this event and it's time to show that we will not tolerate being taken for granted. Let's boycott the competition and see how its future unfolds in the coming years."

"Excuse me to say but there’s no sense in this. Someone takes you to court, all you need to do is to prove them wrong. Demotion isn’t the right path. Demoting Prempeh is telling the general populace that, they(Prempeh) are right but PrimeTime doesn’t like to be challenged or questioned."
