Kweku Baako

Editor-in-Chief of the New Crusading Guide Newspaper, Kwaku Baako Jnr, is of the view that the statement signed by the Minister of Information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah on the recovery of explosives and weapons, implied a coup d’état in Ghana.

According to Mr Baako, though the statement did not explicitly mention a coup, a content analysis of a section of it can infer there was an attempted coup.

“As far as I am concerned, those who have inferred a coup from the statement have legitimate arguments because the government may not have explicitly used those words but the statement implied that,” he said.

To Mr Baako, the issue of coup has been raised because of past experiences of Ghanaians.

“Indeed under such a democratic system with active mainstream media and social media space together with civil activists groups, one will think we don’t have to be skeptical or cynical about such things but our historical experience and the deliberate mischief by some people have accounted for this,” he added on Accra-based Peace FM, monitored by Adom
