Alhaji Alhassan reacts to police invitation

Reacting to the police invitation on Kasapa FM, Alhaji Alhassan said he will honour the summons.

He, however, claimed the video had been doctored.

According to him, his comments were made in interaction with a supporter of the ruling party.

He claimed the NPP faithful had insinuated that the party would not let go of power and would use every avenue, even if it is to rig the election, to ensure that the party stays in power.

He noted that the video only covers his response to that statement and not the statement itself.

Alhaji Alhassan told Kasapa FM he was not aware that he was being recorded and expressed disappointment in the turn of events.
