The Ashanti regional Communications Officer for the Progressive People’s Party, Richard Boadu has warned that he finds it offensive for the musician to support Bishop Heward-Mills when he has been caught attacking the integrity of the Asantehene.
Musician and political activist, A Plus has lashed out at some Ashanti Youth groups for threatening to take action against Bishop Heward-Mills, over comments he made against Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II.
The Ashanti Youth Association, has threatened to close down all 78 churches belonging to Lighthouse Chapel International if their head Pastor doesn’t render proper apology to the King.
But reacting to the press conference, A Plus – real name Kwame Asare Obeng – slammed the youth groups for having misplaced priorities.
He questioned why they had not spoken up against pressing issues in Kumasi but are fixated with the Heward-Mills’ issue.
“There are bad roads in Kumasi but you’ve never demonstrated against it. Manhyia Hospital was in a bad state and people couldn’t believe but you can’t protest against the government for not fixing it after years of voting for the NPP.
“Sir John’s town had no pipe borne water and he had to call me to get them one. Can’t you start your own Fix Kumasi campaign. Galamsey is destroying lands in Ashanti Region, can’t the youth come together and stand against the galamsey. You are foolish. I’m not afraid of anyone and I know your faces,” he said.
