"Maintain The Name Flagstaff House" – Kweku Baako To Akufo-Addo

Editor-in-Chief of the New Crusading Guide Newspaper, Abdul Malik Kweku Baako has sent out a word of advise to the president-elect to maintain the name of the Flagstaff House though that is not its original name.
The Flagstaff House which was originally called ’Golden Jubilee House’’ under the NPP’s led Kuffuor’s government was built to commemorate the country’s attainment of 50 years as an independent State until the Mills Government changed it to its now name.
The veteran journalist on Peace FM’s Kokrokoo show Wednesday urged Nana Addo to maintain its name and status quo.
“I protested when the NDC changed the name from Jubilee House to Flagstaff House, but there was an explanation that it was for purposes of nostalgia…back to Nkrumah and I reminded them that Flagstaff House was not built by Nkrumah and that it was a colonial legacy, somehow Nkrumah decided to retain it.
I wasn’t comfortable with the change from Jubilee House to Flagstaff House, but if I were Nana Akufo Addo, I will not change it back to Jubilee House…I’ll leave it alone.
But the NDC was so unfair, the name Jubilee was not to personalize anything, but to show our 50th anniversary as a nation post independence, so that was more nationalistic which the NDC should’ve maintained.
But they came into power and played petty politics…they changed Ohene Gyan Sports Stadium to Accra Sports Stadium.
Ohene Gyan was such a great Ghanaian but the NDC ochestrated some Ga-Dangme agitation and eventually got Ohene Gyan’s name removed from the stadium…these NDC people have caused trouble in Ghana.”
