Controversial social media commentator and political activist, Kwame Asare Obeng popularly known as A-Plus has registered his displeasure with government and politicians for not supporting tertiary students in the country.
According to the founder of The People’s Project (TPP), it is very sad that Members of Parliament have agreed to share amongst themselves one trillion, six hundred and fifty billion(1,650,000,000,000) as ex-gratia meanwhile government can not absorb GH¢1,500 to support tertiary students in the wave of a pandemic which has made life very difficult for the youth.
He also mentioned that the same tertiary students will hurl insults at people who speak against such matters but will step out in numbers, campaign and vote massively for these parliamentarians to receive another 6 billion after 4 years as ex-gratia.
A plus’ who was once a staunch member of the New Patriotic Party wrote on his Facebook page;
We live in a country where parliamentarian can come together and decide to share one trillion, six hundred and fifty billion (1,650,000,000,000) amongst themselves, where each one of them will get 6 billion old Ghana cedis as exgratia. But in this same country, government cannot pay 1500 Ghana cedis to support tertiary students during a pandemic which has made life very difficult for the youth.
The sad thing is that, the same tertiary students (youth) will insult anyone who speaks against this and will also step out in their numbers to campaign and vote massively for these same Parliamentarians to receive another 6 billion after 4 years.
