Controversial Musician and Member of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), Kwame Asare Obeng popularly known as A-Plus has denied calling Communications Minister, Ursula Owusu-Ekuful a thief.
A libel suit was instituted against the controversial musician after he had claimed that President Akufo-Addoâ€™s complaint to the CID for investigations into the former Ghana Football Association bossâ€™ activities was just a knee-jerk reaction aimed at covering the controversial â€œ89/178 million dollars GVG Kelni Stinking scandalâ€.
He went on to claim that the Communications Ministry, headed by Ursula Owusu, must be blamed for trying to force such a â€œshadyâ€™ deal down the throat of Ghanaians.
However, the allegations made by A Plus did not sit well with Ursula, who has described the musicianâ€™s comments as defamatory and libellous.
He was asked to withdraw and apologise for the comments or be dragged to court but remained defiant.
Ursula eventually sued him for libel.
But A Plus commenting on the matter on Asempa FMâ€™sÂ Ekossi SenÂ Wednesday said he never attacked the minister.
According to him, heâ€™ll not sit by and watch his ten years of dedicated service to President Nana Akufo-Addo and the NPP go to waste because of persons who are working for their vested interests, now that the party is in power.
â€œI never insulted Ursula Owusu. I never called her a thief. What I wrote about the GVG KelniÂ scandal was different from what Ursula claim I said and so she should go look for that because that wasnâ€™t my thought on my facebook page.
â€œShe should go look for the person who posted that on Facebook because Iâ€™m ready to show what I wrote and what I stand forâ€, he noted.
