Not even my 'corpse' will vote for NDC – Kweku Baako

Abdul Malik Kweku Baako, Editor-In-Chief of the New Crusading Guide says not even his corpse will vote for the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC).

Kweku Baako noted that the NDC is not in his league of political parties that he would share any kind of affiliation with.

He noted that his conscience and conviction does not allow him to go to bed with the ruling party in terms of his right to vote.

Kweku Baako made this comment on the Wednesday’s edition of Peace FM‘s Kokrokoo.

Prior to Kweku Baako’s comment, the Member of Parliament for the La Dadekotopon, Nii Amasah Namoale had solicited his votes and implored the seasoned journalist to rally behind him and the ruling party for victory in the December polls.

But Mr. Baako rejected the offer from the NDC bigwig, saying “I don’t vote NDC. My corpse will not even vote for them. It’s true. It can never happen. My conscience, my conviction, my commitment will not allow me to vote NDC. And I have great friends in the NDC [great friends] including the President but it’s unfortunate, I can’t do that. It’s a matter of principle.”
