According to him, the two—Francis Asenso-Boakye and Samuel Abu Jinapor are “very stupid and corrupt people”.
Most of the party’s faithful took it as an attack on the personality and decisions of the President and therefore, attacked him on social media.
Snr Martin Ameyaw responded:
Kwame A-Plus. If you want God to bless you, that is certainly not the way to go. Jealousy, greed, propaganda and insults can never take you higher in politics and in NPP government.
Let me remind you that you have joined the NPP, a party that one can only succeed with good morals, hard work, good educational background and the character of being humble etc.
Chief Francis Asenso-Boakye has come a very long way serving the NPP and President Akufo-Addo.
1. Where were you in the suffering days? I mean from 2008 to 2015.
2. Do you know what it takes to stay close to the President at this crucial moment when 1000s of people are seeking for political appointment from the President?
3. Do you know what it takes to govern a country?
4. Do you know what it takes to become a Founding President of an intellectual organization (TESCON)? Not to mention even an ordinary TESCON President. I will encourage you to go to the various tertiary institution campuses to inquire about the struggle and the effort put in to emerge as a President of TESCON. Does not all, do you know what it takes to become successful as a TESCON Boss in office?
Kwame, I will suggest you shut up your mouth and continue to stay close to Sammi Awuku and his deputy Dominic Padua and learn more about politics and the NPP.
God Bless Hon. Chief Francis Asenso-Boakye (Founding President of TESCON, Deputy Chief of Staff and Political Assistant to the President, Republic of Ghana).
God Bless TESCON and the NPP.

Safo Kwaning also had this to say:
A-Plus is a shameless opportunist. He is always looking for favours from big men. If he doesn’t get his way around you, then he goes blackmailing you. Ghanaians will get to know him. I pray Mr Asenso-Boakye and Mr Abu Jinapor will not respond to him. He doesn’t deserve their energy!
A-Plus doesn’t deserve our time and attention. It appears he feeds on constant attacks and vilification of very noble people of our society.
The earlier he realizes that he has no control in the scheme of affairs, the better for him. He comes no where close to any appointee of this government, including our two deputies to the chief of staff. Indeed, A-Plus is not bigger than any polling station executive of the NPP.
Our deputies to the chief of staff are very noble young men who have had very successful careers in their private lives before taking public offices. They are among the many dynamic young men and women who work tirelessly to ensure that the President achieves his vision. They have no time for trivialities. Members of the party are very happy to have them in office. They are easily accessible! They are dependable! They are men with integrity!
We won’t join him in the gutters because that seem to be his comfort zone, since he has no credibility to his name!
One of the deputies he directly insulted, Francis Asenso-Boakye, took to Facebook handle to give him a diplomatic response:
Dear Kwame A Plus,
I have read with bemusement your infantile and opprobrious rants against my colleague and I, and which also seeks to question the judgement of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo. This is quite regrettable given your avowed support for Nana Akufo-Addo’s vision and commitment to accelerate the development of Ghana. We have work to do and in a hurry to alleviate the debilitating poverty that demeans our people. I genuinely expect all who profess to have the interest of Ghanaians at heart to dedicate themselves to the cause rather than engage in trivialities and attention seeking stunts.
As you may have noticed in my limited interactions with you, the attainment of Akufo-Addo’s vision remains a cardinal priority and paramount consideration in my dealings with all and sundry. I have applied myself diligently and professionally in discharging my duties both as Political Assistant to the President and Deputy Chief of Staff. My schedule in the dual capacity in which I serve His Excellency the President, affords me neither the time or luxury to be planning elaborate schemes to fleece the good people of Ghana who have graciously given us a sacred mandate.
Like you, many people contributed to our resounding electoral victory and remain eager to assist the government achieve its transformation agenda by building a resilient economy that provides fair and equitable opportunities for all. Yet, i must say that it is not everyone who has developed a nauseating sense of entitlement as you unfortunately have. It’s a shame that you would sheepishly use your social media platform and following to seek to besmirch my image and reputation simply to score some measure of revenge for my inability to accede to your request.
I have endeavoured, in my social and political life, to treat everyone with whom I have had the privilege of meeting, big or small, famous or not, with the utmost respect and reverence.
May I reiterate to you, as I did in April, that I will not be intimidated by your vile attacks on my person or held to ransom. You have enormous potential; please harness it more productively. I would earnestly urge you to use your time more judiciously to help move Ghana forward.
Indulging in baseless accusations and unsubstantiated claims of corruption and arrogance is beneath you and frankly discredits you in the eyes of right thinking Ghanaians. As the President noted at the just ended NPP Conference, he is willing and ready to look into any case of alleged corruption. You may kindly take up his generous offer and present your case to him.
While I have this opportunity, allow me to echo the sentiments of President J. A. Kufuor. We need matured minds in our Party and body politics. You will do well to heed the age old adage: “a word to the wise is enough”
I wish you a pleasant day
Most of the party faithfuls on Facebook seem to support the Deputy
