I give him up to Monday to come out and tell Ghanaians exactly the crime he committed or I will be forced to come and show to keep for the sake of his integrity as a Ghanaian but if he has decided to blame me, I will spit it out if he doesn’t apologize by Monday 4th March”- Paintsil tells Saddick Adams Sports Obama on Atinka TV Sports Court monitored by MyNewsGh.com .
