Kweku Baako Has Lost Touch With The People

The Deputy National Youth Organizer of the Convention People’s Party (CPP), Mr. Ernesto Yeboah, has described the Managing Editor of the Crusading Guide newspaper as "an appeaser of the neo-colonial order". He was responding to Mr. Baako’s opinion on Joy FM Newsfile program that CPP’s commendation of the violent demonstration by agitated youth over poor roads, "amounts to constitutional lawlessness". Speaking on Multi TV, Ernesto Yeboah stated that the word ‘people’ in the CPP was not for decorative purpose and that it was most regrettable that Mr. Kwaku Baako who was "once upon a time a voice for the people has become an appeaser of the neo-colonial order". He said today, Mr. Baako speaks for Ex-President Kufour, Mills and President Mahama. He has no idea about the predicaments of the people and therefore can afford to condemn them on account of their justifiable demands. He maintained that if Mr. Baako was looking for "votes" for constitutional lawlessness’’ then the 1992 constitution is the number one example – a constitution that was signed by the leader of a violent organization with no mandate cannot be talking about peace. Ernesto asked "where was Mr. Kweku Baako when the Ghana Police Service announced an illegal ban on all demonstrations pending the completion of the election petition hearing before the Supreme Court? Does he not think that is also an example of a vote for constitutional lawlessness"? Mr. Yeboah added it was hypocritical of somebody who actively partook in the street protest and blood festivals, screaming "let the blood flow" to take such a stance. Mr. Baako has no morality to castigate the CPP’s endorsement of the Ashaiman protest. "It was the most national thing to do under the circumstance", he added.
