Nana Kwame Bediako, commonly known by many as Cheddar or Freedom Jacob Caesar has unmasked himself as the face behind the New Force political movement.
Speaking after a planned public lecture event dubbed “The Convention,” which he had organised under the brand name, New Africa Foundation was cancelled, Nana Kwame Bediako said he had wanted to use another opportunity to unveil himself and talk about his policies and explain why he wants to lead Ghana as President.
But, because he invited eminent persons like P.L.O. Lumumba from Kenya, Peter Obi from Nigeria, Julius Malema from South Africa and R. Arikana from Zimbabwe for the January 7 event to speak on the topic, “Igniting the voices of Africa”, but it was cancelled following a denial of access to the Independence Square at the last hour, he decided to use the opportunity to unmask himself.
He said the circumstances surrounding the cancellation is what has made him to unmask himself prematurely and that, he would have wanted to unveil himself and talk about his policies at the right time, he told the press.
