Badu was editor of various newspapers including the Cape Coast Daily Mail and the Daily Gazette. He assisted T. D.

In June 1965, he became the member of parliament for the Manso constituency as a member of the Convention People's Party. He remained in parliament until the overthrow of the Nkrumah government in 1966. After the overthrow, he became the editor of the Evening Standard, a newspaper that was owned by Komla Agbeli Gbedemah.

In the 1969 parliamentary election, he contested for the Adansi constituency seat on the ticket of the National Alliance of Liberals but lost to Stephen Nuamah of the Progress Party who polled 7,812 votes against his 2,292 votes. During the second republic, he was the editor and owner of the Spokesman newspaper.

After the overthrow of the Busia government, he was appointed the National Redemption Council (NRC) spokesman for the press.[15] In early 1978 he was appointed Commissioner for Consumer Affairs by the then ruling government, the Supreme Military Council (which was then the NRC from 1972 until 1975). In 1979 he became the Commissioner of Sports and Local Government. He remained in this post until June 1979 when the SMC was overthrown.

During the Armed Forces Revolutionary Council (AFRC) rule, he was reverted to the ministry of Consumer Affairs in June 1979. He served in this capacity until September 1979 when the military government handed over to civilian rule. Badu later became Chairman of the Press Commission.
