Replying Miss Elizabeth Ohene, Minister of State in-charge of Tertiary Education said, "I could remember that the President and I were here sometime ago to meet the Chiefs and people at this particular place"; referring to venue for the People's Assembly.

"On another occasion the President was hooted at by the people and it is natural that when people do not welcome you when you visit them you do not feel safe going back to them", she explained.
