He admitted that while he has been arrested several times in London for minor offences like road traffic violations, he was never charged nor convicted for any of those offences.

Nana Kwame Bediako explained that his arrests were mainly due to his youthful exuberance and recklessness. Still, they were never severe enough to warrant a conviction or be put on his record.

He dared anyone who believed he had a criminal record to bring proof of said record.

“In the times that I was in London, I have been arrested driving cars, I have been arrested doing, you know, night club, whatever we were young. But I don’t have any criminal record for being arrested to be charged.
“So if someone is saying I have a criminal record, they have to bring the charge and the proof,” he said.

He accused his detractors of using such flimsy accusations to distract his growing youthful base from his policies and vision for Ghana.
