''Basically it's a human thing that you do that, you come to your employee’s aid when there have been kind of problem to your employee,'' he told Wontumi FM in Kumasi.

''You are an employee and you are working for an employer, you expect them (employer) to take care of you whatever that happens to you during your contract or how long you’ve been working there so we are expecting them(Asante Kotoko) to do that.

''Let’s be honest, they are adult, they should know these things; If the tables turn around and it happens to them, how will they feel, three years later and we still haven’t been compensated, what if is them was in the accident, don’t you think they would have already got their compensation?.
