Hiplife musician and former enthusiast of the ruling New Patriotic Party ( NPP), Kwame Asare Obeng ‘A Plus’ has described the party as the biggest scam in Ghana, MyNewsGh.com reports.
The musician, who was close to the NPP campaign since 2008, in a Facebook post on Sunday, revealed how the NPP took money from Menzgold and the defunct UniBank to finance its activities, contributing to the collapse of the two firms.
“Mustapha Hameed, if you are looking for the biggest scam in Ghana it is the NPP. 1. This party in opposition took money from almost everyone including Nam1. The Menzgold money is with NPP big men!!! Even in government you guys still went to him for money for your Koforidua conference and promised to help him. The poor menzgold customers money was used to sponsor the NPP 2016 campaign.
2. This party called NPP, took all the Unibank money for campaign and came back and closed it down. I know exactly how much they paid for your Tamale congress in 2014. (2 million dollars) Even when you won and knew that the bank was on life support you still went for poor depositors’ money for your Cape coast conference because you knew that even if the bank collapses you will pay with taxpayers money. The biggest scam in this country is the NPP.
I’ve given this post to you at a wholesale price. My next post will depend on you. And trust me, it will be wild!!!”, he wrote on his Facebook wall in response to a user, Mustapha Hameed who had called A Plus and his TPP “a scam”.
Mustapha Hameed, whom according to his Facebook information is a lecturer, politician and Executive Director at Midas Centre for Energy and Resource Policy, has replied A Plus in the post below;
“If I didn’t see Ndoum, Akpaloo, Akua Donkor, Odike and the rest, I’ll probably have taken A Plus seriously. But Alhamdulillah, all of these were manifestations that happened before my own eyes. And like Allah will say in the Holy Quran after a series verses, “….among these are are signs for people of understanding”.
The signs are clear enough, that TPP is at best a joke in a circus run by elements with a bloated sense of relevance and influence in the politics of this country, and at worst a political scam. Nothing more, nothing less.
Those who sincerely believe they have something to change in the politics of this country know what to do. Those who genuinely know they have something to offer in the positive transformation of this country know what to do. They put themselves before the people with the transformational ideas and the execution strategies they have to be considered for election into leadership position, or align themselves with those whose philosophies they share. Or be in private enterprise or civil society or anything the semblance of these.
Anyone who only seeks to rally the people behind him in the name of a movement, and use those numbers as a trump card to get what he wants from politicians is like I said, clearly headless clown running a circus, or some modern day political fraud; both won’t last.
A Plus says he want to have about 1 million people behind him whom as he describes, use as the force in a pendulum, to decide where political power swings.
As for those allegations about UNIBANK and Menzgold, I’m sure if he still had his BOST oil contract, he wouldn’t be making them. Lol ????
We are not in the election season yet, the rest of the exchanges will happen in the season.
A Plus should register his TPP with the EC and contest the 2020 as political party.
Till then, TPP – SCAM!”.
A Plus has threatened that his response “will be wild”.
