Recounting what brought about this rather ‘hostile’ relationship between the two elephant folks, Sammy Crabbe told host of ‘21 minutes with KKB’ show, Kwabena Kyenkyenhene Boateng that it started when he decided to support current Deputy Majority leader and Member of Parliament for Dome-Kwabenya Constituency, Sarah Adwoa Sarfo when she decided to contest him during the Party’s primaries. If that is the price to pay for their friendship he stated, it is one he is very well prepared to pay. “I did what I believe and if for that reason it has to end up in this frosty relationship, then fine I don’t have to be friends with him,” he said. This has since created somewhat ‘bad blood’ between Sammy Crabbe and the current Speaker of Parliament, Professor Aaron Mike Oquaye.
