A Plus apologizes -Controversial musician Kwame A Plus has rendered an apology to President Nana Akufo-Addo for his public allegations of corruption against some government officials.
A Plus earlier accused Nana Addo’s two Deputy Chiefs of Staff, Abu Jinapor and Francis Asenso-Boakye of corruption and described them as “arrogant fools”. The Criminal Investigations Department (CID) has since begun investigations into those allegations.
The musician had taken to Facebook to accuse President Akufo-Addo’s two Deputy Chiefs of Staff, Francis Asenso-Boakye, and Abu Jinapor of being corrupt, a move which subsequently brought about a war of words between the stakeholders.
However, A Plus has apologized admitting that he should have taken his accusation to more appropriate avenues. “The approach was very wrong. I have apologized to the President especially,” he said in a Citi News interview, as he expressed remorse for his actions.
A Plus Apologizes but Maintains Corruption Claims
The musician, however, did not retract his corruption claims against the two deputy Chiefs of Staff. When probed, Kwame A Plus said that whatever evidence he has will be made available to the police.
According to him, It is not being public that will solve the issue; but rather, getting it to the right authorities and making sure that it is sorted out.
Kwame A Plus while commending the New Patriotic Party (NPP) after their annual National Delegates Conference, lodged a verbal attack on the two deputy chiefs of staff appointed by President Nana Addo. He described them as corrupt officials who are scheming to swindle the government.
One of the alleged corrupt officials Asenso-Boakye who chose not to keep mute about the allegations fired back at the musician who he said was just out to tarnish his (Asenso-Boakye) image.
His response which led to further counter attacks which drew the attention of other political stakeholders, as well as the public to the issue.
Joining in the business of pointing fingers, NPP Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong, had also called for the immediate investigation of A-Plus’s claims. He said he had every reason to believe that other appointees of the ruling NPP were corrupt.
This then prompted the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) to invite A Plus and Ken Agyapong to answer questions on their corruption claims. The two will appear before the CID to provide further information on their claims.
