Speaking on "Ekosii Sɛn" on Asempa FM on Monday June 29, Mr. Nitiwul argued that the deployment started long ago and was not only into Volta Region but all other border Regions in the country, thus describing the comments of the former president as unfortunate. "I think that as an immediate past Commander-in-Chief of the Ghana Armed Forces, his statement is not right. The Ghana Armed Forces cannot be manipulated and he should know better, having acted in that position for 4 good years."

He further explained that they have deployed the soldiers, police and immigration officers to to several towns in the country. "So I am very much disappointed in the former president to allude that we have just deployed them recently. He obviously got his facts wrong. He got his intelligence wrong and I think he should withdraw this part of his release." He questioned the former President if he planned to intimidate people when he sent troops to Yendi, Bimbilla, Bawku, Wa and Bole during his era.

Mr. Nitiwul insisted that he will not withdraw the troops as that will mean government is not living up to expectation. He argued that the former president set his own questions and tried to answer them by his comments as he sees it to be completely needless comment to make.
