Controversial Ghanaian musician, A Plus has made a statement that there are too many criminals around President Nana Akufo-Addo which has made his fight against corruption very difficult for him.
According to the pro-NPP singer Kwame Asare Obeng, the above canker will dent the President’s legacy in nipping the canker in the bud.
“There are too many criminals around the president. Too many people want to use his government for their personal interest and it will affect his legacy.
“This is someone we have been with and helping the President protect the public purse by fighting corruption. Some people around him have decided to fight us; which is very wrong,” he noted.
Dropping his statement in an interview with Roland Walker on the AM Show Monday, he bemoaned the attacks unleashed on him in pointing out the ills in the current administration.
According to Mr. “A Plus”, President Akufo-Addo in his inaugural speech called on Ghanaians to be citizens and not spectators, but in doing so, some individuals in the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) he considered enemies of the state have decided to fight him.
Kwame A Plus noted that this phenomenon remains an affront to safeguarding the public purse.
“The president told us to be citizens and help him protect the public purse. When he came to power, that is what we wanted to do for him. Protecting the public purse comes with issues that people don’t want to hear,” he stated.
The outspoken musician bemoaned the failure of the Akufo-Addo-led administration to fulfill its promise in halting corruption.
He continued in his statement that President Akufo-Addo has given many of his appointees too much freedom to engage in corrupt practices of which he later exonerated them from wrongdoings.
“Nana Akufo-Addo knows some of the issues that are not right but I think it is very difficult to lead the NDC and NPP. The institution itself is built on corruption, so even if they put you on top as the leader, the guys will come to you and force you to be one of them,” A Plus said.
