Renowned musician and political activist Kwame Asare Obeng alias A Plus has noted that musician Bice Osei Kuffuor ( alias Obour), who is vying to be a Member of Parliament (MP) for the Asante Akyem South Constituency, will not be a good parliamentarian if he is elected by the people.
Making the point on Facebook, A Plus stated that Obour’s tenure as President of the Musicians Union of Ghana( MUSIGA) portrayed him as a bad leader who failed completely as leader of the musicians’ organisation. This, he argued, is proof that Obour will not be a competent parliamentarian.
“Let me tell you this. Listen carefully. Obour is my friend but I don’t support his parliamentary bid. He won’t be a good parliamentarian. He is not transparent. Obour was running Musigha as if he invented the piano (One man show). In my opinion, I think he is the worst MUSIGA president we have ever had. As a young guy, his failure at MUSIGA has destroyed the chances of young people who will want to lead the union in future. If you can’t paint and clear weed at MUSIGA Headquarters, what can you do for a whole constituency?” He wrote on Facebook.
Notwithstanding, A Plus insisted that all those who had accused him of risking the lives of others by not disclosing that his now deceased father may have been infected by Coronavirus, ought to apologise to him given that the Ridge Hospital where Obour’s father died has failed to show proof that he indeed died of the virus.
Obour had denied claims that his father had died of COVID-19 and his family has since his demise requested for the autopsy report to no avail.
“You insulted Obour on this same page when the issue came up but you are not asking why after multiple requests by the family, Ridge Hospital has failed to issue them the man’s autopsy report. You have failed to tell us why Ridge Hospital as an institution failed to release a statement to counter Obours claims,” he argued.
“That notwithstanding, I will support Obour when he is being treated unfairly irrespective of my personal reservation. All those who insulted him must apologize to him. I don’t deal with people. I deal with the issue at stake. I don’t hate it. I don’t look at issues based on my relationship with the parties involved. Joy News must apologize to Obour. To all those who insulted Obour, it won’t hurt a fly if you come back here and say sorry in a comment,” he opined.
