I am of the opinion that, A-Plus has been shaken by some top NPP gurus in the party, the reason for him, twisting his words on what he had initially said about Jinapor and Asenso-Boakye. In Politics, there are lots of things that happen behind the scenes, that the media just decides not to publish.
Speak to some few NPP loyal members, and they will tell you how some people in the party hate A-Plus now for some of the utterances he makes on Social Media.
Just some few days ago, this same man, called two presidential staffers ‘corrupt’ and ‘stupid’ and wondered why President Nana Addo appointed such ‘thieves’ into his government–Later he apologised but insisted, his claims of corruption against the, still stand.
A-Plus’s public outburst about these two presidential staffers from his own political party prompted the CID to take action, so they invited him to provide evidence in relation to the corruption allgations he had made.
A-Plus is expected to meet the CID today, to give evidence on the allegations of corruption he leveled agasint the two presidential staffers but in an interview yesterday on Okay Fm, A-plus said he never accused the two Deputy Chiefs of Staff of taking bribes, although he branded the appointees as “corrupt and thieves.”
He said, “when I said corruption, it has a meaning, but maybe it is in the minds of some people that they [Jinapor and Asenso-Boakye] had taken a bribe, no it is not so.”
“…7 months of NPP government. So far so good except appointing some very corrupt official including the two very stupid deputy chief of staff. It’s amazing how Nana was able to appoint two thieves whose level of stupidity is the same. Arrogant and corrupt fools. You think you’ll be in power forever. Even John Mahama I was not afraid of him then you (sic),” A-Plus said in the post.
But Francis Asenso-Boakye, one of the accused, rejected the claims describing them as unsubstantiated.
It later emerged that A-Plus’ allegation against the two individuals stemmed from his desire to get an extra contract aside a $3m BOST deal he was given under the New Patriotic Party (NPP) government.
After receiving severe backlash from the public including some members of the government, A-Plus apologised to the President for his actions, admitting that he used the wrong platform to voice out his concerns.
Kwame A-Plus had earlier told Citi News he will appear before the CID with his evidence but now he claims he has no evidence.
So it’s obvious he’s been shaken by some top NPP gurus. Can someone ask him, if he has been able to gather courage to cancel his Ghc 3 million a month contract with BOST?
Now someone should ask A-Plus what he understands by describing someone as ‘Corrupt’?
This is a definition of what being ‘Corrupt’ means:
having or showing a willingness to act dishonestly in return for money or personal gain.
