However Jay Ghartey commended his colleagues who are pursuing their political ambitions and also added that he personally sees nothing wrong with that besides its their right and especially if they want to cause a change in society.

Jay Ghartey further stated that he might consider participating in active politics in near future but as of now he wants to be a peace maker.
“I want to be a peace maker so I don’t want to really be taking sides at this time maybe in the future if I believe in something I can change my mind.”
