PoliticalNewsRoom

Ghanaian entertainment pundit and former musician Kwame A Plus has yet again lashed out at Ghanaian leaders over the poor state of some of their citizens.


In a Facebook post on his official Facebook page @A Plus on Saturday, 3rd April, 2021, the former musician complained about how citizens of Ghana wear aluminium while they have abundance of holdnin their country. While comparing Ghana to United Arab Emirates (UAE), A Plus made a case that over there citizens drive cars with big engines because they have oil and that their oil is cheap and affordable.

On Ghana's situation, he noted that Ghana ha stimber yet school children lack desks in the classrooms. He complained about how, despite being a cocoa producing country, children who labor on cocoa farms have never even seen bars of chocolate or tasted it.


The reason, he noted is because everyone's pockets is "emptier than a bankers heart, it will only cause saliva without mastication."


Here is the full post as sighted on his official Facebook page:


"In Arab countries like UAE, 🇦🇪 citizens drive cars with big engines because they have oil 🛢 and the price of fuel is cheap. In Ghana, we have gold but citizens wear "alumi." (Sia you dey come insult me sake of this post, "red gold green, red gold green" you see gold before?) 😂😂😂🤣🤣🤣🤣 We have timber but school kids lack desks in the classroom. We have cocoa but most children who have endured child labour on cocoa farms have never seen or tasted chocolate 🍫 before and even if their eyes are fortunate to behold a bar of chocolate, because the pocket is emptier than a bankers heart, it will only cause salivating without mastication.
