This Was A Needless Distraction…Completely Unnecessary - Disappointed Kweku Baako Blast Napo

The Managing Editor of the New Crusading Guide newspaper, Abdul Malik Kweku Baako has expressed his disappointment over the running mate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh popularly known as NAPO's recent "gaffe".

Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh, during his unveiling in Kumasi said no President, including Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, has contributed to Ghana’s development significantly as President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo. 

“Since independence from 1957 till today, we’ve not had any president that has helped Ghana like Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo. I say from 1957 till today, you can bring your Kwame Nkrumah… no president who has protected Ghana and moved the country forward like Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo,” he asserted.

He goofed

James Kwabena Bomfeh, popularly known as Kabila speaking in reaction on Peace FM's morning show 'Kokrokoo' said Napo's comment was in bad taste.

“He goofed big time...He should not have made that statement, simply because he wouldn’t have had time to explain to the audience what he meant by the statement that Akufo Addo’s achievements surpass that of Dr. Kwame Nkrumah. I believe that what added salt to injury was his comment of “your Kwame Nkrumah” which sends a wrong signal to the persona and the great achievements of Dr. Kwame Nkrumah.”

“I want him to know and understand that, we don’t undermine Kwame Nkrumah. Admittedly, Kwame Nkrumah wasn’t a perfect human being, but he led Ghana to gain our Freedom, thereby making Ghana the first Country in sub-Sahara Africa to gain independence from colonial rulers. Beyond his great works, he has also penned down lots of articles and books more than any other President in the history of Ghana, intellectually contributing to the development of the minds of Ghanaians and the world at large, especially among the black race and the suffering people around the world" he stated.



Unnecessary, Needless

Kweku Baako was speaking on the same platform said the Nkrumah, Akufo-Addo comparison was irrelevant.

"Let me be brutally frank, the comparison Napo made had no relevance. It was a needless distraction. It's so unnecessary, completely irrelevant and needless. what is at stake right now is an election...as the running mate being outdoored; you can exalt NPP projects; President Akufo Addo's projects, you're entitled to that but don't drag in another figure. Needless distraction; you don't provide armour for your opponents or neutrals; needless and it lacks relevance...I'm disappointed" he lamented
