NDC members divulging their secrets to me - A Plus

Musician Kwame Asare Obeng affectionately called A Plus has disclosed that leading members of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) are divulging their secrets to him.

“While you were on your various whatsapp platforms discussing me, some of your members snapshot the chats and sent to me. I don’t want to create trouble I would have posted them on facebook but for the protection of the integrity of those who sent the chats to me”, he revealed.

A Plus who is angry over claims he has taken over fuel haulage in the country for which reason members of the NDC have been discussing him, alleging he got it through his association with President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, warned all those on NDC platforms to be careful.

The musician cum businessman denied claims he has monopolized the fuel haulage disclosing that he has only been given three tankers in a week he described as woefully inadequate indicating that he worked hard to achieve his feet.

“I have only been granted license by the Bulk Oil Storage and Transportation Company Ltd (BOST) to haul fuel to designated areas thrice a week contrary to media reports of his monopoly on the business”

“I am trying hard to buy 10 fuel tankers by the close of the May 2017. If you are sitting down and say you worked for the party and they have come to power and they have abandoned you, you will always remain where you are”, he advised.

Those who are complaining are the ones who took over such business in the past administration and shared it among themselves. One person under the former NDC administration was transporting 40 times per day, I can tell you on authority. But there is equity in Akufo-Addo’s government such that they share all business equitably under this administration. I’m very close to Bawumia and the President, but I couldn’t have lobbied to be given the whole job because Nana Addo will not agree for such thing to go on in his government.”

He revealed that all the contracts he has won were lobbied for by dent of his effort and did therefore not get them on a silver platter touting himself as someone who is hard working to make ends meet.
