Genfi made the claim on local language television station UTV to prove the point that COP Mensah's professionalism as a police officer is questionable.

"I am also aware, as a matter of fact, that he is going to contest the Bekwai seat on the ticket of the NPP because Joe Wise [Joseph Osei Owusu] has said that he won't run again, and he is the one behind him going to contest," he said in Twi.
