Only Ghanaian leaders grow older, become sillier and draw closer to Satan – A Plus

Founder of The People's Project (TPP), Kwame Asare Obeng, popularly known as A Plus has taken a subtle swipe at Ghanaian leaders over some decisions and policies they introduce in their various positions.

Old age they say comes with wisdom but Kwame A Plus finds it ironic that Ghanaian leaders exhibit the opposite of what is supposed to be natural. In their case, according to him, they become sillier and wicked.

His comments come on the back of the National Identification Authority’s nationwide GhanaCard exercise it is embarking on to provide Ghanaians a new identification mode which they say will allow the citizen access services on many fronts.

In a rather sacarstic post, he said,

“The only thing you cannot do with your Ghana card is to walk to a polling station and request a ballot paper to enable you vote for a candidate of your choice. So we have decided to spend over 400 million dollars to produce another card just for that purpose”.

“What I know is that, as people grow older, they gain more wisdom and draw closer to God. Unfortunately as African leaders grow older they become silly, wicked and draw closer to Satan.”

Here is the full post below:
