"At the start of the New Force, with the mask and everything, we were speaking to so many people to join us." But now, I want to inform the public that we tried so many individuals to be the spokesman, but they were all afraid and didn't want to use their faces," Cheddar stated in a January 2024 TV3 interview. Nana Kwame Bediako chastised the Ghana Immigration Service for failing to provide Shalimar Abbiusi's allegedly fabricated paperwork. "The Ghana Immigration Service could not provide the forged documents of Shalimar Abbiusi," claimed the official. He said that his desire to run for president was a divine calling.

Nana Kwame Bediako, better known as Cheddar, the head of the New Force political organisation, has explained his choice of a spokesperson for his group.

He added that when numerous Ghanaians declined the offer, he chose a Belgian, Ms. Shalimar Abbuisi, as the group’s spokesman.

Many Ghanaians, according to Cheddar, declined the assignment out of fear for their lives, adding that they were hesitant to expose their faces and wished to stay anonymous.

“At the start of the New Force, with the mask and everything, we were speaking to so many people to join us.” But now, I want to inform the public that we tried so many individuals to be the spokesman, but they were all afraid and didn’t want to use their faces,” Cheddar stated in a January 2024 TV3 interview.

Nana Kwame Bediako chastised the Ghana Immigration Service for failing to provide Shalimar Abbiusi’s allegedly fabricated paperwork.

“The Ghana Immigration Service could not provide the forged documents of Shalimar Abbiusi,” claimed the official.

He said that his desire to run for president was a divine calling.

“My desire to run for president began with a dream.” “The dream inspired the formation of a political party,” he revealed.

Background

Shalimar Abbiusi was deported to her native Belgium on December 20, 2023, amid charges of unfair treatment and human rights breaches.

She was deported after the state dismissed the allegation of acquiring a student pass with a false declaration and then rearrested her on Tuesday, December 19, 2023.

Her attorneys claimed that the dismissal of the charge was due to the Ghana Immigration Service’s desire to deport her.

Cheddar announced himself as the main force behind the growing political movement known as New Force on January 8, 2024.

Nana Kwame Bediako attempted to reveal himself during the lecture to reveal his identity and explain his views.

Originally intended to reveal himself at the event, he elected to unmask prematurely owing to the event’s cancellation due to a last-minute refusal of entrance to the Black Star Square.

He expressed his hope for the outgoing Majority Leader to have lasted till the finish, calling him as tremendously industrious.

The First Deputy Speaker of Parliament and Member of Parliament for Bekwai, Joseph Osei-Owusu, often known as ‘Joewise,’ has emphasized the necessity for the Majority caucus to address possible repercussions following the departure of the outgoing Majority Leader, Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu.

In an interview with media in Parliament on Thursday, February 22, the MP for Bekwai said, “The caucus will regroup and determine where to go. I am certain that the caucus will address all of these repercussions, including the impact of our leader’s resignation.

“The process of selecting or electing a new leader, we will discuss all that. And if there are any implications or negative impacts on our caucus, we may decide and plan a route that will keep us together.”

He expressed his hope for the outgoing Majority Leader to have lasted till the finish, calling him tremendously industrious.

“He can sit from morning till morning if there’s work to be done. I am personally disappointed that Kyei decided to stand down; he has been a fantastic leader, and he is an extremely hardworking person. And I would have wished that he stayed on to the end.”

Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu resigned voluntarily with immediate effect on Wednesday, February 21, following a critical meeting of the majority group.

President Nana Akufo-Addo convened the meeting, which took place in Accra’s Jubilee House banquet hall.

The session, attended by the majority of the group’s members, was organised in response to rising tensions within the New Patriotic Party (NPP) parliamentary group.
