Editor-in-Chief of the New Crusading Guide newspaper, Abdul Malik Kweku Baako, has chided the National Democratic Congress (NDC) for doing propaganda with the creation of COVID-19 response team.
According to him, the NDC should understand that the country is currently in crisis hence must desist from false propaganda.
Kweku Baako said had the NDC understood ‘our current situation’, they would not have engaged in such a ‘propaganda stunt’.
“It’s obviously problematic. I can’t say they have no right to hold press conferences or sit at the beer bar or chop bar and make such proposals, but this is a major challenge facing the nation . . . and so I felt some of these things should have been presented to parliament.
If you are focused and you understand our current situation, you will lessen some of these public stunts, propaganda stunts; you minimize or eliminate them and focus… you cannot set up anybody who will be a substitute to what statutory institutions are doing. If you want to complement, it must go through appropriate framework,” he slammed.
