Veteran Journalist, Abdul Malik Kweku Baako has revealed that President John Mahama over a fortnight to the December 7 election, took strong exception to a documentary done by his campaign team that sought to damage the personality of President-elect Nana Akufo Addo.

According to him, President Mahama in a private conversation with him, described the said documentary as vicious which should not be encouraged.

The John Mahama campaign team ahead of the generqal elections ran a lot of adverts some of which attacked the person of Nana Akufo Addo.

One of such adverts was a documentary which was shown on television which painted the against the three-time Flagbearer as a drug addict.

However, Abdul Malik Kweku Baako who is also Editor-in-Chief of the New Crusading Guide Newspaper, stated on Joy FM’s Newsfile programme Saturday that President Mahama who could not counternance the said advert got it taken off air.

“Three weeks ago in the evening I had a call and the call came from President John Mahama…it was around 10pm. I picked the call and he said he wants to run by me something, and I said what is it? He had been watching Metro TV and had seen a certain documentary that had been done by his campaign team, he thought that was a vicious thing. He was asking me about my opinion but he’s been told that, that was in reaction to a documentary that the NPP had done which they characterized him (president) as corrupt. But he sees what his boys had done in terms of response as vicious and that he wants to get them to get it off.

Abdul Malik Kweku Baako added: Then I said well, if you’ve seen the viciousness of it…I hadn’t seen it, I hadn’t also seen the NPP one, but said I’ll try to monitor the two. But I told him once he’s taken the decision that this thing is bad, then it’s bad.”

He said Ghanaians were simply tired of the over flogged lies about Akufo Addo being a drug dealer, noting that it back fired…it was propaganda backlash.
