Musician Kwame A-Plus has been invited by the Criminal Investigations department (CID) to answer questions on allegations of corruption he fired against two deputies of the chief of staff.
Kwame A-Plus leveled serious allegations against the two deputies, Francis Asenso-Baokye and Samuel Abdulai Jinapor, that they take monies from people who wanted to meet President Nana Akuffo Addo.
But it’s not just Kwame A-Plus who has been invited, we have learned that Kennedy Agyapong would equally be invited since he also backed A-plus’s claim, saying that the rot at the presidency extends far beyond just the two people A-Plus mentioned.
The director of communications at the presidency, Eugene Arhin made this revelation in an interview on Joy FM’s Super Morning Show on Wednesday.
“I know for a fact that as of yesterday, the CID made contact with A-Plus and Kennedy Agyapong with regard to the allegations they made against the two deputies of the chief of staff,” he said.
“The era in which allegations were made against persons for making sake is over,” he indicated, adding that “the president said if you have any allegation against anybody, you should be prepared to back it up.”–Eugene Arhin told Joy FM.
But in a new interview Kwame A-Plus had on Joy Fm’s Super morning show on Wednesday (30th August, 2017), he apologized for using the wrong platform to make those allegations and also for using raspy words at the two presidential staffers.
I apologise to the President for using the method and language I used in expressing my feelings,” he rendered, adding that the reaction may be borne out of his high expectation for the President Akufo-Addo.
“My expectation of Nana Addo is just too high [and] sometimes I just jump the gun”.
He, however, maintained that the corruption claim against the Messrs Asenso-Boakye and Jinapor still stands.
“I apologise about how I put it, I have apologised to the people [two officials] but not the substance of the accusation… Not to the people I made the allegations against,” A-Plus insisted.
He said he was happy when he had a call from the Presidency “to come and give evidence [over corruption allegation]”.
“I was so happy…that is what I voted for,” A Plus who revealed plans to contest the Chairmanship position of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Gomoa Central Constituency of the Central Region, stated
He however, refused to give details about the ownership of HT Global, the organization he works as the Executive Director, which has been involved in the lifting of fuel from Bulk Oil Storage and Transport Company (BOST).
