Below is what he wrote:
‘Hello Ghana ths Kwame Citizen, your loyal patriot. I would like to sincerely apologize for what happened on my sixtieth birthday performance at the just ended Ghana at sixty celebrations.
Life is always not the way we design it but pressure from the army general turned every message I wanted to tell Ghanaians down after the microphone that was given to me earlier malfunctioned . As the hawk catches the chicks of the hen unaware so was i caught. My lesson from this experience is to be prepared to face any surprise circumstances to help build mother Ghana. Thank you and I love you all’.
