Founder of The People's Project (TPP), Kwame Asare Obeng, popularly known as A-Plus, has called on Ghanaians to have a change of mind particularly regarding their trust in politicians and their political decisions.
According to him, since 2020 is fast approaching, he believes it is about time citizens put their heads together and see through the schemes of their ‘so-called leaders’.
A-Plus believes these politicians, in the end, seek to exploit them and use them for their various propagandist agenda.
“The people at the top do not care about you. In 2020 we need to unite in our thinking and let our brains work. Most of us are in NPP today because we were told Rawlings was a bad man, and called him names, but today, the greatest hero for the party is Jerry John Rawlings. They’ve fooled us, only for us to realise later that he is a good man.
The division we have because of Akufo-Addo and John Mahama, they will only become friends later and you will be left hanging. We need to use our heads because 10 years from now, we’ll still be 20 years younger than Akufo-Addo,” he said.
A-Plus has, therefore, rallied the youth especially, to put their feet on the ground this time, to use rationality and objectivity to choose wise leaders rather than falling prey to the ‘games’ of politicians and losing big at the end of the day.
In other news, Ghanaian stand-up comedian OB Amponsah has disclosed he was traumatized by the insults and criticisms heaped on him by some members of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) following a joke he said about the party’s flag-bearer.
The popular comedian during a performance at this year’s edition of Decemba2Rememba mentioned that the name ‘Mahama’ is synonymous with corruption in Hausa.
Deemed an expensive joke, a salvo of attacks hit OB Amponsah on Thursday, December 26 – few hours to his performance at the ‘Night of 1026 Laughs & Music’.
Recounting his ordeal in an interview with GhanaWeb, OB Amponsah said he contemplated calling it quits after the unwarranted attacks on his person after that harmless joke.
