Capturing the death of J.B Danquah in your manifesto is not right- Kweku Baako

Experienced journalist, Abdul Malik Kweku Baako has reproved Ex-President John Dramani Mahama for consisting of in his party’s policy that his government will investigate the murder of J.B Danquah-Adu, the former MP for Abuakwa North.

Mr. Mahama, at the launch of NDC manifesto refered the “People’s Manifesto”, vowed to ”commence investigation into the death of Ahmed Hussein-Suale and other unsolved issues including the murder of J.B. Danquah-Adu”.

The late J.B Danquah-Adu was murdered in 2016 in his residence while Ahmed Hussein-Suale unfortunately died on the spot when some unknown foes ambushed him and shot him to his death.

Touching on Mr. Mahama’s statements, Kweku Baako said he doesn’t see how feasible Mahama can do what he looks for to do if he comes back to power after the December general elections.

According to him, the J.B Danquah-Adu’s situation is pending in the law court and so the NDC capturing it in their manifesto is inappropriate.

“I find it inappropriate. The case is ongoing . . . If you understand murder trial and they have experienced lawyers and politicians there, so really unless you seek to politicize it, I don’t see the basis on which it should be included in a manifesto. You can make that statement politically on any platform and I don’t think you will have a problem . . . but to capture it in the manifesto, I have a difficulty,” he informed host Kwami Sefa Kayi on Peace FM’s ‘Kokrokoo’.
