- NPP Deputy General Secretary has condemned A Plus's comments on social media
- He said Kwame A Plus should have used internal party structures to voice out his grievances
Nana Obiri Boahen, the governing New Patriotic Party's (NPP) Deputy General Secretary, has criticized musician Kwame Asare, also known as A Plus's recent social media comments accusing presidential staffers of corruption.
Over the weekend, Ghanaian celebrity Kwame A Plus and presidential Deputy Chief of Staff, Asenso Boakye waged war on social media over allegations of corruption made by Kwame A Plus.
The war of words started when Kwame A Plus, in a series of posts on his Facebook page, described Abu Jinapor and Francis Asenso-Boakye, both presidential Deputy Chiefs of Staff, as corrupt and arrogant, the latter being because - according to A Plus - the two refuse to pick up calls from party members.
Among other things, Kwame A Plus went on to describe the two as "foolish" and "stupid" in social media posts that inspired a response from Francis Asenso-Boakye, who referred to A Plus as "infantile".
