Minority press conference disappointing - Kweku Baako

Editor-in-Chief of the New Crusading Guide newspaper, Abdul Malik Kweku Baako, has expressed his disappointment in a press conference held by the Minority on Tuesday.

The minority National Democratic Congress (NDC) in parliament, on Tuesday, held a press conference to assess the first 100 days of the NPP administration under President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

Leading the press conference which was held at the precincts of parliament, the Deputy Minority Leader, James Klutse Avedzi among other issues, said it was totally unnecessary and a waste of public resources to create ministries such as the one in-charge of Public Procurement, Ministries of Aviation, Railway Development, Regional Reorganisation and Information.

However speaking to the press conference during a panel discussion on Wednesday's edition of PeaceFM's 'Kokrokoo', Kweku Baako described the press conference as a 'sheer waste of time'.

According to him, the various issues raised by the minority were just 'blank bullets'

"Sheer waste of time…sheer waste of precious time and space…firing of blank bullets."
