NDC Did Not Learn Any Lessons From The Ya Na Issue – Kweku Baako Slams Mahama For Pledging To Investigate JB Danquah, Ahmed Suale Murders



Veteran journalist, Abdul Malik Kweku Baako has slammed the opposition NDC and its flagbearer, John Dramani Mahama for including in their manifesto, a promise to investigate the murders of late MP, JB Danquah Adu, and late investigative journalist, Ahmed Hussein Suale.

The NDC in its manifesto mentioned the murder of the two persons among a list of high-profile unresolved crimes it will investigate.

The party also promised to compensate families of the late investigative journalist and the lawmaker.

However, appearing as a regular panelist on Peace FM’s ‘Kokrokoo’ with Kwame Sefa Kayi, the veteran journalist slammed the NDC for attempting to politicize the two murders.

Kweku Baako reminded the NDC of how they incorporated in their 2008 manifesto a promise to investigate the murder of Ya Na Yakubu Andani, a promise which they could not fulfill.

“I have a certain challenge with it and its not the first time. In the 2008 manifesto, they captured the Ya Na case in their manifesto. I don’t have a difficulty if you project these things within the context of a state of the nation address but I’m not too sure whether it’s in a proper place if it comes to a manifesto”.

“The Ya Na issue was controversial and they insisted on setting up a presidential commission because they did not believe in the commission set up by Kufuor. I remember they even ridiculed members on that commission. They made a u-turn while in government because the presidential commission did not happen though there were prosecutions. I was thinking they might have learnt their lesson but they have added this to their manifesto”. He said.
