Musician and New Patriotic Party (NPP) sympathizer, Kwame A-Plus has, apologized to President Nana Akufo-Addo for his public allegations of corruption against some presidential staffers.
“The approach was very wrong. I have apologized to the President especially,” he said in a Citi News interview, as he expressed some remorse for his actions.A-Plus, real name Kwame Asare Obeng, took to Facebook to accuse President Akufo-Addo’s two Deputy Chiefs of Staff, Francis Asenso-Boakye, and Abu Jinapor of being corrupt.
But he has admitted that he should have taken his accusation to more appropriate avenues.
“It is not being public that will solve the issue. It is about getting it to the right authorities and making sure that it is sorted out. It was a very wrong approach. I have apologized. Any opportunity that I have, I will apologize for the approach. The method was very wrong.”
CID steps in
A-Plus, however, did not take back his allegations against the two Deputy Chiefs of Staff, when probed, and said whatever evidence he has will be made available to the police.
In a post on Facebook, the Musician described the two Deputy Chiefs of Staff as thieves and corrupt without backing his claims with evidence.
“…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 stated on his Facebook page.
He has since been invited by the Criminal Investigations Department (CID), to answer questions about the corruption claims.
This came on the back of a directive President Akufo-Addo gave to the security agencies to investigate any corruption allegations made against his officials.
The NPP Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong, had also called for the immediate investigation of A-Plus’s claims.
The MP said he had every reason to believe that other appointees of President Akufo-Addo were also corrupt.
Mr. Agyapong was also invited by the CID to answer to his corruption allegations.
