“In my situation, I wasn’t forcibly removed. There was a disagreement, and I chose not to participate further. However, after discussions with our elders, I returned voluntarily. So, I wasn’t ousted. As for Dede Ayew, I’m not privy to the details of what happened.I wasn’t given a clear explanation for the removal of my captaincy, which left me frustrated and hurt. However, at present, we are businesspeople backing the team during their matches.”
