Controversial Ghanaian musician, Kwame Asare Obeng popularly known as A Plus has turned against the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) in a scandalous manner.

The now social activist and anti corruption crusader who campaigned vigorously for the NPP and its candidate, Nana Akufo-Addo from 2008 to the 2016 elections has described the party as the biggest scam in Ghana.

In an explosive Facebook post, A Plus claimed party bigwigs within the NPP took money from defunct gold dealership firm, Menzgold and UniBank to finance its activities.

According to him, the NPP contributed to the collapse of the two firms.

A Plus was responding to one Mustapha Hameed, a sympathizer of the NPP on the social networking site after the latter described his newly formed political group - The Peoples Party (TPP) - as a scam.

He wrote: “Mustapha Hameed, if you are looking for the biggest scam in Ghana it is the NPP. 1. This party in opposition took money from almost everyone including Nam1. The Menzgold money is with NPP big men!!! Even in government you guys still went to him for money for your Koforidua conference and promised to help him. The poor menzgold customers money was used to sponsor the NPP 2016 campaign.

2. This party called NPP, took all the Unibank money for campaign and came back and closed it down. I know exactly how much they paid for your Tamale congress in 2014. (2 million dollars) Even when you won and knew that the bank was on life support you still went for poor depositors’ money for your Cape coast conference because you knew that even if the bank collapses you will pay with taxpayers money. The biggest scam in this country is the NPP.

I’ve given this post to you at a wholesale price. My next post will depend on you. And trust me, it will be wild!!!”,

In a swift rebuttal, Mustapha Hameed, who according to his profile on Facebook is a lecturer and Executive Director at Midas Centre for Energy and Resource Policy wrote;

“If I didn’t see Ndoum, Akpaloo, Akua Donkor, Odike and the rest, I’ll probably have taken A Plus seriously. But Alhamdulillah, all of these were manifestations that happened before my own eyes. And like Allah will say in the Holy Quran after a series verses, “….among these are are signs for people of understanding”.

The signs are clear enough, that TPP is at best a joke in a circus run by elements with a bloated sense of relevance and influence in the politics of this country, and at worst a political scam. Nothing more, nothing less.

Those who sincerely believe they have something to change in the politics of this country know what to do. Those who genuinely know they have something to offer in the positive transformation of this country know what to do. They put themselves before the people with the transformational ideas and the execution strategies they have to be considered for election into leadership position, or align themselves with those whose philosophies they share. Or be in private enterprise or civil society or anything the semblance of these.

Anyone who only seeks to rally the people behind him in the name of a movement, and use those numbers as a trump card to get what he wants from politicians is like I said, clearly headless clown running a circus, or some modern day political fraud; both won’t last.

A Plus says he want to have about 1 million people behind him whom as he describes, use as the force in a pendulum, to decide where political power swings.

As for those allegations about UNIBANK and Menzgold, I’m sure if he still had his BOST oil contract, he wouldn’t be making them. Lol ????

We are not in the election season yet, the rest of the exchanges will happen in the season.

A Plus should register his TPP with the EC and contest the 2020 as political party.

Till then, TPP – SCAM!”.
