Kweku Baako Scolds Ayariga for Attacking Nana Addo

Kweku Baako Jnr has taken a swipe at the Flagbearer of the All People's Congress (APC) Hassan Ayariga for venting his spleen on Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo.

Hassan Ayariga lambasted Nana Addo, flagbearer of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) claiming he is not fit to be President of the Republic because he still lives in his father's house even at age 72.

“At age 72, my senior and my father, Nana Akufo-Addo, is still living in his father’s house. At this age 72, I would have retired from politics and been advising young men of this country to move this country forward and not contest with them anymore,” he reportedly said.

He is also reported to have said in an interview with Class FM on Wednesday, September 28 that Nana Addo is nobody but just an ordinary human being and must pave way for the youth to take over the leadership of the country.

"The NPP thinks Nana Addo is a god. Nana Addo is nobody, he is no god. I want the NPP to know in this world that if Nana Addo is what they think he is, he will have won elections for them. He is nobody; he is just an ordinary human being. Where I come from, [the eldest] son [doesn’t] live in his father’s house after a certain age; that’s leadership. You must move out and let the youth take over and show leadership.”

Speaking to these comments, Kweku Baako, Editor-in-Chief of the New Crusading Guide newspaper expressed bitter feelings over the behaviour of the APC flagbearer, saying the method he's adopted is very “crude".

"I have seen some of them attacking other presidential candidates especially Nana Addo and they are going about it in a very crude way," he said, adding that Ayariga's attacks on the personality of Nana Addo proves how unprepared and unready he is for the Presidential seat.

“It creates the impression that they are not seeking the ultimate, which is the presidency; they are just exposing themselves that they are not in the competition."
