Musician and political activists, Kwame A Plus, has written a long piece on why he thinks Ghana’s development has stalled.

The piece also details his unalloyed love for Ghana’s president, Nana Akufo-Addo and his decision to criticise his government in spite of that love.

Below is the full piece by A Plus for your reading pleasure:

“One day, this noble man’s presidency will come to an end. Some people will try to lie about him. They will try to destroy his legacy. They may even say free SHS is the worse policy ever. He may be treated unfairly. His children may be stopped in traffic and their cars taken from them. Businesses belonging to people associated to him may suffer. This is Ghana. That day will surely come. Just as I keep fighting for Ibrahim Mahama’s cement factory, I will fight for them. I will be here. On this same facebook and other media outlets fighting for Nana and condemning unjust treatments meted out to him and his associates. I will tell the world the many good things he would have achieved by then (I pray everything works out perfectly well) and condemn the few bad things that have happened. (I hope and pray none happens again).

“I will do same for any Ghanaian including John Mahama. I will not stop talking about his unprecedented Tema Port expansion project. (Go to Tema and see for yourself). I will praise him for ending dumsor. (Dumsor started in Ghana in 1998) I will praise him for the circle and Kasoa interchange. (They should have extended the dual carriage a bit further though) I will praise him for terminal 3. It is beautiful. I will praise him for the many hospitals he built. I will also praise him for the schools he was building. But I will condemn him for allowing Akonfem to run away to Burkina when so much taxpayers money was involved. I will not stop talking about SADA and the bus branding and the Ghana embassy in Burkina Faso wall, and the 2014 world cup, just to mention a few…”

According to A Plus, ever since he started bashing incumbent and past government officials through his anti-corruption songs, he has barely seen a change.

“It is a very simple principle that will never change. I released freedom of speech 17 years ago. Agye Gon 14 years ago. A Letter to Parliament 11 years ago. Africa/A Letter to the West 10 years ago. Abɛn Bɛ Bom 2 years ago. Nothing has changed. Nothing will change. Your comment won’t change anything. This is me…”

When we were campaigning, anytime someone said Nana Addo will never become president, we asked a very simple question; “are you God?” Today the same people people who asked that question want me to join them shout, John Mahama will never become president again. Am I God? Are you God? When did you become God? What happened under Mahama that was wrong, can’t be right under Nana. The unfair treatment Nana Addo received in opposition can’t be fair to Mahama today. Right and wrong must not be determined by where one belongs politically.

It is a very simple principle that will never change. I released freedom of speech 17 years ago. Agye Gon 14 years ago. A Letter to Parliament 11 years ago. Africa/A Letter to the West 10 years ago. Abɛn Bɛ Bom 2 years ago. Nothing has changed. Nothing will change. You comment won’t change anything.

This is me.

  1. My brother relax, all of us know very well that, we can’t develop with democracy, but we chose it, As for me I have stopped complaining, because if we want development, democratic government is no go area. No country have developed with democracy, You can’t eat your cake and still have it. Go and check the advantages and disadvantages of the various types of leadership we have, You will realize that with democracy what is happening is not news
