Astute morning show host, Kwame Sefa Kayi, affectionately called Chairman General, believes there's absolutely nothing wrong with him campaigning for 'NO' votes in the upcoming December 17th referendum.

Speaking on his 'Kokrokoo' show on Peace FM Thursday, monitored by Ghanaguardian.com, the award-winning journalist said people 'attacking' him over his 'NO' position on the referendum should put an end to it as according to him, he only spoke his mind just as any other.

Chairman General said if there was something wrong with someone declaring his state on the referendum, why then will the first gentleman of the land, President Nana Akufo-Addo and Members of Parliament (MPs) publicly campaign for 'YES' or 'NO' votes?

"Even the President himself says his vote is YES, MPs have stated their positions. So what is wrong if I state my position as well?", he rhetorically quizzed.

According to Sefa Kayi, nothing could move him from his 'NO' position in the upcoming national exercise.

"I've long stated my position to be NO. I started saying this about 3 months ago ..and I still stand by that", he added.

Meanwhile, some Ghanaians are also pushing for the postponement of the referendum, thinking it will allow some space for a national consensus-building on the issue.
