Entertainment pundit and politician Kwame Obeng Asare, known as A Plus, is delivering a firm warning to the New Patriotic Party (NPP) regarding his political ambitions.

His caution arises amidst accusations that Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia persuaded him to withdraw his candidacy as an independent candidate in the Gomoa Central Constituency.

A Plus vehemently refutes these allegations, underscoring his steadfast determination to run for the seat independently.

Emphasizing his autonomy from political pressures, A Plus underscored that no political figure, including prominent members of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), can sway his decision to contest for the seat in December 2024.

Dismissing rumors of his withdrawal from the race, A Plus reaffirmed his commitment to addressing the challenges confronting constituents. He expressed confidence in securing victory over the incumbent NPP parliamentary candidate.

During an Instagram live session, he urged supporters to disregard speculations about his candidacy’s status. Addressing allegations of Vice President Bawumia’s involvement, A Plus stated firmly, “Even though he is the vice president and the flagbearer of the NPP, he cannot tell me what to do.”

He cautioned NPP members against employing unethical tactics in Gomoa Central, warning that any such actions would lead to their defeat, akin to events in Assin North. A Plus asserted his control over the constituency, regardless of financial influence.

Recently launching his campaign for the Gomoa Central parliamentary seat ahead of the 2024 general elections, A Plus pledged to unseat the incumbent NPP MP, Naana Eyiah Quansah, who has held the position for two consecutive terms.
