After much speculation regarding the mysterious figure behind the ‘The New Force‘ campaign, Nana Kwame Bediako, also known as Freedom Jacob Caesar, has confirmed that he is indeed the masked persona.
This revelation surfaced during a press conference discussing the cancellation of ‘The Convention 2024,’ an event organized by his New Africa Foundation. Originally slated for January 7, 2024, at the Kwame Nkrumah Independence Square to coincide with Ghana’s Constitution Day, the event aimed to celebrate various facets of African excellence.
It was designed to bring together thought leaders, artists, and a diverse audience representing every segment of the country—a microcosm reflecting the broader African continent. However, National Security officials intervened, preventing the event from taking place at the planned location.
In an unexpected turn, The New Force’s highly anticipated gathering was abruptly halted, leaving attendees and observers in suspense.
The event, scheduled for Sunday, January 7, 2024, at the Independence Square, coinciding with Ghana’s Constitution Day, was abruptly canceled at the behest of the government, as communicated by the organizers shortly before it was due to begin.
According to the New Africa Foundation, the event’s organizers, Independence Square was already filled with thousands of patrons and renowned speakers like Professor P. L. O. Lumumba, Julius Malema, Dr. Arikana Chihombori-Quao, and Peter Obi when they received the directive to cancel.
