The editor-in-chief of the New Crusading Guide newspaper, Abdul Malik Kweku Baako, has stated that there is no chance of him ever voting for the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
Mr Baako, a member of the Conventions Peoples Part (CPP) said on Accra-based Peace FM that his principles and conviction would not let him vote for the NDC.
“I don’t vote NDC. My corpse will not even vote for them. It’s true. It can never happen. My conscience, my conviction, my commitment will not allow me to vote NDC.
And I have great friends in the NDC [great friends] including the President but it’s unfortunate, I can’t do that. It’s a matter of principle,” he said.
Mr Baako’s remarks came after an NDC parliamentary aspirant for the La Dadekotopon constituency, Nii Amasah Namoale, appealed for his vote.
The comments do not come as a surprise because although Mr Baako is a member of the CPP, his positions of national issues tend to align closely with those of the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
Also, he was incarcerated by the military government of Flight Lieutenant Jerry John Rawlings, which later transmogrified into the NDC.
