The Criminal Investigative Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service has dismissed allegations of thievery and corruption leveled against the two Deputy Chiefs of Staff of President Nana Akufo-Addo’s government by controversial musician, A-Plus.
A-Plus who is known in private life as Kwame Obeng Asare took to his Facebook page last month to accuse the two, Samuel Abu Jinapor and Francis Asenso-Boakye of thievery and corruption and also described them as ‘stupid’.
He further questioned why President Akufo-Addo appointed the two into his government.
After much criticisms in the media, he apologized for the insults but stood by his allegations and went ahead to honour a CID invitation over the matter as a means of providing evidence for his claims.
But according to the Director General of the CID, Bright Oduro, A-Plus could not provide them with enough credible information concerning his allegations.
In a statement released on Monday, the CID Director General revealed that all they could gather from their interactions with the musician turned politician was an alleged intervention by the two Chiefs of Staff in a matter involving the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital.
“That following a petition by Unibank Ghana Limited to the effect that the management of Korle Bu had abrogated an existing MOU with them without any reason and that the Korle Bu had not treated them fairly, Messers Asenso-Boakye and Jinapor among others intervened to seek clarity from the hospital’s management regarding the said petition,” the statement said.
The said intervention, however, Mr Oduro explained did not flout any laws of the country.
He therefore described the allegation of corruption against the two presidential staffers as “baseless, unsubstantiated and without credibility.”
Meanwhile, A-Plus is set to wed celebrity stylist and fashion blogger, Violet Bannerman Quaye, popularly known as Akosua Vee in Accra on Sunday.
