Crossfire: A Plus, Asenso-Boakye hurl insults at each other

Last weekend was characterized by war of words between Deputy Chief of Staff, Francis Asenso-Boakye and musician Kwame Asare better known as A Plus over allegations of corruption.

The two were on social media throwing salvos at each other with supporters joining in the fray either condemning or further muddying the situation leaving much to be desired.

Francis Asenso-Boakye, one of two Deputies Chief of Staff, has however called the bluff of controversial hiplife artist and so-called NPP loyalist A Plus, who has made corruption allegation against the two, cautioning him to desist from what he describes as “attention seeking stunts.”

The artist in a three separate posts on his social media page attacked the two personalities, including Abdulai Jinapor, described them as not only corrupt but arrogant who have refused to pick calls of party faithfuls.

Using what many have described as unsavory words to describe the two, A Plus says though the administration’s performance in seven months is commendable, the appointment of the two is below standard and called them as “stupid” and “fools.”

“NPP delegates congress……7 months of NPP government. So far so good except appointing some very corrupt official including the two very stupid chief of staffs. It is amazing how Nana was able to appoint two thieves whose level of stupidity is the same.”

He added two other posts and attacked the two and persons and those he thinks are backing them.

But in a swift response Mr. Asenso-Boakye, who also works as Political Assistant of the President, described the attack on him as “infantile” and “opprobrious rants against my colleague and I, and which also seeks to question the judgement of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.”

He said he will not be blackmailed by the artist and will not allow himself to be dragged into his “sheepish” rants.

“I must say that it is not everyone who has developed a nauseating sense of entitlement as you unfortunately have. It’s a shame that you would sheepishly use your social media platform and following to seek to besmirch my image and reputation simply to score measure of revenge for my in ability to accede to your request.”
