Nana Kwame Bediako, also known as Freedom Jacob Caesar or Cheddar, has revealed that he put a whopping $300,000 into the recently canceled event that was supposed to introduce him as the mastermind of the ‘The New Force’ movement.
In an interview with TV3, the businessman and philanthropist expressed his disappointment, accusing the government of treating him unfairly for calling off the event so abruptly even though he had reserved and paid for the prestigious Black Star Square venue well in advance.
He further claims that the government is lying when they say he paid GHC 10,000 for the Black Stars Square when in reality he paid GHC $30,000.
Nana Kwame Bediako provided receipts as evidence that he had paid GHC 30k, not GHC 10k as stated in the Office of the President’s statement announcing the event’s cancellation.
Cheddar made an appearance on TV3 to discuss issues related to his postponed event and presidential campaign.
He claims that he is running for president of Ghana because he feels that God has called him to save the Ghanaian people.

The New Africa Foundation planned the event, which they called “The Convention,” which was scheduled for January 7, 2024, but was later cancelled.
Despite the cancellation, the press conference was held by the organizers, and all of the invited speakers condemned poor leadership, unjustified poverty, and youth unemployment. At the press conference, Nana Kwame Bediako was introduced as the brains behind “The New Force,” which was symbolized by billboards with a mask-wearing figure positioned all over the country.
Bediako declared, promising to share his policies and visions in the future.
Reactions to the developments have been divided; some have expressed support for Nana Kwame Bediako and “The New Force” movement, while others have questioned the movement’s legitimacy and methods of operation. The country is waiting for more information regarding the intentions and goals of “The New Force” as the controversy rages on.
