-Popular Musician has indicated that NPP members were taking bribes to ‘frustrate’ plans to cancel tow levy
-He added that the president and his vice were furious about passing the tow levy
-The stanch NPP member implicated the Ministry of Information for going against the wishes of the sitting president
Outspoken Musician-turned-politician, Kwame A-Plus has indicated that some big wigs in the governing New Patriotic Party have taken bribes to facilitate the passage of the tow levy despite clear indications that the president and vice president were both not in favor of the levy.
In a Facebook post, the staunch NPP supporter indicated that some powerful NPP stalwarts had taken bribes from opposition NDC to ensure that the tow levy faces no opposition when it gets to parliament.
The musician indicated that even though a cabinet meeting was held recently to cancel the passage of the tow levy, some NPP members had compromised themselves by taking bribes to ensure that the levy is passed at all costs.
A-Plus bemoaned the fact that politicians were not angels and so it was not strange that they would resort to taking bribes to help pass the towing levy. He stated in no uncertain terms that the NPP members who had taken the bribes were going against the wish of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
He added that unlike the past John Mahama-led administration that sought to promote wrong-doing government appointees, he was in the business of exposing anyone who went against the law regardless of the political affiliation of the person.
He also implicated the Ministry of Information as also having something to do with the efforts to pass the tow levy. He said that the Ministry failed to make a press statement on the matter even though they had received orders from the president to do so.
