Musician cum politician Kwame Asare Obeng aka A-Plus has chided the Akufo Addo led government for their intolerance to criticism and continuing the family and friends government run by ex president John Mahama.
According to A Plus, he lost a Bulk Oil and Storage Transport (BOST) contract simply because he criticised the government. He expressed regret in campaigning for the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP).
“We wanted change, we believed everything that was being said. We believed it was not right for John Mahama to run a family and friends government. We believed that it was not right for John Mahama to have 87 ministers,” A Plus told George Quaye on Joy FM’s Showbiz A-Z.
He added, “they were too many and now we come and we have more than that. We live in a country where NPP and NDC are the same and it is the fact even though they don’t want to hear [it].”
“It is in the Constitution that government must make me happy and give me employment. So if you come to power, you must give me employment, I must be employed,” he stressed.
