Editor-in-Chief of the New Crusading Guide Newspaper, Kweku Baako Jnr has called on Vice President Kwesi Amissah Arthur to stop behaving like a serial caller.

This follows Amissah Arthur’s comments calling on NDC supporters to be extra vigilant during the December 7 polls. Vice President Amissah Arthur said this is because there are plans by some political parties to rig the election.

But speaking on Accra-based Peace FM Baako said he least expected the Vice President to make such comments because of his character.

“He’s my friend and I respect him a lot. He’s level-headed and very calm. He’s a gentleman and there’s no doubt about it. Very cultured and educated, but this thing about rigging, where did he get it from? When one mounts the political platform, the person’s real self gets lost and he/she gets into an entirely different mode. If I’m to analyse such a person, I struggle. So, if he’s listening to us, he should calm down on his comments before he’s dragged into the gutter.”

He said he will pardon some other people if they made such statements "but if a whole Vice President will descend low to the level of a serial caller, then it is very worrying. What I’m saying about him is so weighty that I can’t freely say it."

He added that the Vice President should be cautious in what he says on campaign platforms because there are a number of Ghanaians who respect him.

"Some of us respect him so he should stop making such comments. Like the one that he asked for someone in a crowd of supporters to be lifted because short people cannot see Mahama’s achievements, which we were later told was a joke. I’m a typical Fante, and I enjoy jokes and can perform comedies, but at a certain stage, comedy turns into a tragedy. So the big men should know how to handle themselves.”
