-Kweku Baako has revealed the source of his copy of portions of the NDC's Kwesi Botchwey report
-This follows days of bashing from the party's executives who insist Mr Baako's copy is a fake
-He also revalued that he will soon have the 455-page report in full which will be put in the media
Editor-in-Chief of the New Crusading Guide Newspaper, Abdul Makik Kweku Baako has revealed how he came by portions of the opposition National Democratic Congress' (NDC) much guarded Kwesi Botchwey report.
Mr Baako has been chastised by the NDC after he claimed that he had portions of the report with the party’s general secretary, Johnson Asiedu Nketia and his deputy, Koku Anyidoho describing his supposed copy as fake.
Disputing their assertions over the weekend, the veteran journalist, revealed that he has an insider in the NDC who photographed and scanned parts of the report for him.
According to him, per his calculations he will soon have the 455-page report in full.
“This whole thing is a reflection of the power play in the NDC particularly when they’ve opened the flood gates for elections. As I told you my copies were photographed, scanned and transmitted to me and more is coming. Indeed very soon, the whole report that they’re hiding in a rat hole will emerge, the whole four hundred and something will emerge and we’ll come and put it here so that they tell you it’s fake. The report will come to us".
The report which is the results of the work done by the 13-member fact finding committee chaired by former Finance Minister, Dr. Kwesi Botchwey which was tasked to find ascertain the reasons for the party's humbling defeat in the 2016 general elections.
The report which was submitted about five months ago has been kept under lock and key with the party insisting it was not for public consumption.
Though some media claim to have copies which they have been serialising, the NDC maintains that those reports are not original.
Speaking on Joy FM's Newsfile programme, Mr Baako challenged the NDC to the original report available if they think what he and other media houses have are fakes.
"Ordinarily, it shouldn’t be a big matter if they want to keep the report to themselves but when you go out and tell a journalist that what you’re publishing is fake, then the challenge is yours to produce the genuine report", he said.
Mr Baako's revelation should get the NDC shivering as the report is said to contain some damning revelations which when put into the public domain will be catastrophic for the party's bid to wrestle power from the NPP in 2020.
