Musician turned Politician Kwame Asare Obeng  popularly known as A-Plus has expressed his disgust about what is popularly described as  he refers to as “Political victimization of businessmen”.

In Ghana, it is a well Known fact that whenever Government changes from one political party to another, businesses who are seen not to belong to the Political party in power ‘suffers’ as many have their contracts with government terminated. denied business opportunities among other victimizations.

In a writing published by A Plus on his Facebook page, he revealed how he recall having a chat with the President of Ghana HE Nana Addo in 2018 in which the President told him that when a Ghanaian and a foreigner are bidding for something, he the President will always prefer the Ghanaian gets it But now, his Government has revoked the mining lease of a Ghanaian company (owned by  Ibrahim Mahama)  and now leasing out same to a foreign Chinese company (synohydro ) among other examples.

BELOW IS THE WRITE UP BY KWAME ASARE OBEN ( A PLUS )

When Ibrahim Mahama, a Ghanaian got his mining lease, the government of Ghana took him to the supreme court to revoke his lease arguing that he did not have parliamentary ratification. The government knows very well that not a single mining company in Ghana, locally or foreign owned has parliamentary ratification but just because they wanted to victimize and NDC person Ibrahim Mahama, they singled him out and revoked his lease.

Today, out of shame this same government which revoked Ibrahim Mahama’s license for not having parliamentary ratification and gave a concession he spent millions of Dollars prospecting to a chines company, (synohydro) instead of asking the same supreme court to revoke all licenses of mining companies who are mining without parliamentary ratification have rather taken this list to parliament for ratification.

HE Nana Addo told me one morning in 2018 in his house that when a Ghanaian and a foreigner are bidding for something, he will always prefer the Ghanaian gets it.

You see, when I spoke against how unfairly Kingdom Herbal and Yafo Yafo were being treated by Opuni and his FDA when NDC was in power, I was not fighting for Kingdom Herbal and NPP people. I was fighting for Ibrahim Mahama and NDC people because I knew they won’t be in power forever and that one day same will be meted out to them. Today, I’m back here talking about how Ibrahim Mahama is being unfairly treated. I’m not fighting for Ibrahim Mahama or any NDC person. I’m fighting for Gaby Otchere Darko, kingdom Herbal and other NPP people because they won’t be in power forever.

I totally agree that Wrongdoers must be punished, but this practice of NDC victimizing NPP businessmen and vice versa must come to an end at some point. If this stops now, we won’t come back here some years later to talk about how NPP businessmen are being victimized. Today it’s Ibrahim, tomorrow it may be you.

This 63 years of tit for tat must stop now!!!
