The Managing Editor of the Daily Searchlight Newspaper, Ken Kuranchie, says he is embarrassed by veteran journalist, Kweku Baako’s spirited defense of President Mahama over the Ford gift controversy.
The New Crusading Guide Editor -in- Chief, who is also a celebrated investigative journalist has rubbished the bribery allegation against President Mahama, saying, the whole matter is not an issue . According to him, Manasseh Azuri Awuni's efforts to get to the bottom of the matter is commendable, but the attempt to link the issue to a bribe could have been better packaged.
Speaking on Atinka FM’s AM Drive with Kwame Adinkra Friday , Ken Kuranchie mentioned that he has a lot of respect for Kweku Baako, who he(Kuranchie) looks up to in the media adding that he would have worshiped him if he were a God. He, however, stated that he is embarrassed at the comments by the man he so much respects passed on the gift saga.
According to Ken Kuranchie, the President is a Public officer and that the issue of him accepting a car as a gift from no other person than a contractor who had been awarded a contract is a serious issue that should not be brushed aside as the New Crusading Guide Newspaper boss is doing.
