In an interview, he explained that his intention was to pay more than what others might offer, not necessarily double the amount.
Mr. Alfred Obeng Boateng defended having money in dollars, asserting that it should not be perceived as hoarding or illegal activity.

The parliamentarian clarified his statements. He explained that he meant it as a deterrent to potential competition, not an attempt to purchase votes.
He believed that his comments did not warrant investigation by regulatory agencies such as the Special Prosecutor.
His remarks highlighted his financial readiness for the upcoming campaign. He also expressed his dedication to garnering support from delegates in his constituency.
