He stated,

"I never supported Mark's appointment. Everybody knows it. I was vocal about it on social media and even clashed with him. We all know each other, and you know what I can't tolerate. We are who we are. Our deeds show over time. Over the years, Mark hasn't done anything."

Hammer also described Mark Okraku Mantey as a self-centred individual who has never prioritised the public's interests above his interests.

He said,

"Nobody can dispute Mark's prowess as a businessman. I am a big fan of his when it comes to a certain point. Public office is different. Public office is putting your needs or wants aside and championing a cause. Mark hasn't displayed that. Okraku Mantey's whole career has been about Mark."
