- He faulted the former president for the imprisonment and execution of several high profile personalities
- He stated that he liked Rawlings' personality, but detested his political opinions
- He again vowed never to endorse the National Democratic Congress (NDC)
One of Ghana’s famous journalists, Abdul Malik Kweku Baako, who is the Editor-in-Chief of the New Crusading Guide, has opened up about his dislike for the founder of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Jerry John Rawlings.
According to him, Rawlings’ political ideologies are nothing to write home about.
He was however quick to add that though he admires the former president’s personality, he is not too comfortable with his partisan perspectives.
He then shifted attention to the political party the ex – president founded.
To him, he has no problem with their policies, if they are geared towards the development of the country. He would however, never support the party.
His reason, according to him, was that the NDC overthrew his party in the Third Republic.
The coup d’état led to the imprisonment and in some cases, execution of several high profile personalities, including himself.
