A Plus says he has decided to stop criticising President Akufo-Addo in public

Musician and political activist, A-Plus, says he has decided to never again criticise President Nana Akufo-Addo in public as it sends the wrong message about his support for the New Patriotic Party (NPP).

A-Plus however noted that he will refrain from speaking up against policies and programmes under the Akufo-Addo government which he believes are not important to Ghanaians.

As reported by Starrfm.com.gh, A-Plus was speaking to KOD and Cookie Tee on the Starr Drive on Friday, March 15, 2019.

A-Plus, real name Kwame Asare Obeng, continued to urge Ghanaians to demand accountability from elected officials.

He is quoted as saying: "I have decided not to publicly criticise President Akufo-Addo again. But when it comes to policies that I disagree with under his government I will talk about them because that is why we voted for change."

He continued: “I have a personal relationship with the president which is different from politics. Politics is one thing and my relationship with him is another so the difference must be appreciated. Nana (Akufo-Addo) is a wonderful human being...he is really a nice person."

“ Right now, we are going to construct a cathedral and I disagree with it. We have infrastructure issues to deal with, our people want water and boreholes need to be constructed yet we are talking about the cathedral.

"I even disagree with claims that the state is not going to fund the cathedral. Why didn’t the NPP build it when they were in opposition? They are doing it now because they are in power. It’s state money that is going to be used”.

He has even gone as far as mooting the point the idea that he may vote for the oppostion National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the 2020 elections.
