Speaking about her defeat for the first time on Accra-based Kasapa Fm, she said “Some elements within the party engineered my defeat in 2016. Some National Security personnel who were being controlled by faceless individuals stormed my constituency to campaign against me saying Mahama has said he cannot work with me so they should vote against me. At the end of the day I lost the contest. Do you think I’m happy with my defeat? Today I’m being consumed by debts because of my defeat in the 2016”
