New Force Leader aka “Cheddar” seen with Ghana Ex-Prez Mahama

Nana Kwame Bediako, known as Cheddar or Freedom Jacob Caesar, leader of the New Force movement of Ghana, has sparked new intrigue about his political ambitions following a recent meeting with Ghana’s Ex-President John Mahama. 

The encounter comes amidst the last-minute cancellation of “The Convention“, a planned public lecture generating significant buzz.

Cheddar, initially hailed as the figure behind the New Africa Foundation, had invited prominent Pan-African figures like Timi Frank, PLO Lumumba, Peter Obi, Julius Malema and Arikana Chihombori-Quao for the event that was to launch the New African Foundation Convention in Accra. However, “The Convention” scheduled January 7, 2024 at Ghana’s Independence Square was abruptly called off last minute, leaving many questions unanswered.

Reason for meeting unknown

The purpose of Cheddar’s meeting with Mahama remains shrouded in mystery, revealed only through a post on X by Ovation International Editor, Dele Momodu below.

Meanwhile, at a press conference, Cheddar confirmed his own presidential aspirations and vowed to unveil his policies for leading Ghana.

Adding to the confusion, the cancellation of “The Convention” further muddied the waters surrounding New Force’s political leanings. Cheddar, however, insisted that the New Africa platform aims to empower African leaders to educate Ghanaians and Africans.

What The Convention sought to do and the man behind the mask

Lenders like PLO Lumumba from Kenya, Peter Obi from Nigeria, Julius Malema from South Africa, and Arikana from Zimbabwe were originally slated to speak at “The Convention,” tackling the theme “Igniting the voices of Africa.”

Adding another layer to the unfolding saga, the Diaspora Affairs Directorate at the Office of the President clarified the abrupt cancellation. Deputy Director Dr. Nadia Adongo Fynn attributed it to an unforeseen state event necessitating the last-minute withdrawal of venue permission, despite initial approval in November 2023. The Directorate expressed regret for the inconvenience and mentioned a refund of the venue fee.

The New Force billboards in town which had a man in a mask has since changed with Cheddar’s face embossed on the billboards indicating that the man behind the mask has now been unmasked. It is now carrying the message “Nana Kwame Bediako for President.”
