Special Aide to the Ashanti Regional Chairman of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Mr Andy Owusu has fired a shot at Kumawood actor, Bill Asamoah accusing him of being anti-government.
According to the spokesperson of Mr. Bernard Antwi Bosiako, the latter prior to the 2016 clandestinely worked against then opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), the actor deserves nothing good from the government.
The Tourism Minister renctly awarded movie icons such as Kwadwo Nkansah, Akrobeto, Nana Ama McBrown, Vivian Jill Lawrence and Akyere Bruwaa. Others include Bishop Bernard Nyarko, Rose Mensah (Kyeiwaa), Christiana Awuni and Bill Asamoah.
Speaking to journalists in Kumasi, Mr. Andy Owusu wondered why the Ministry did select Bill Asamoah whom he believes to be in bed with the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) and awarded him.
“Prior to the 2016 general elections, the NPP had to extend our campaign to most of the known actors in Ghana’s movie and entertainment industry. Some of these Celebrities joined the NPP’s campaigned through the thick and thin; they campaigned strongly for us in the NPP, whiles the likes of Bill Asamoah fall for the NDC and Mr. Mahama’s money”
“Bill Asamoah is a known NDC Member who did underground and open campaign for John Mahama during the 2016 elections and we must all know he does not deserve this honor”
“Matilda Asare, Agya Koo and a lot of these Celebrities trusted and therefore joined the NPP’s campaign and campaigned ruthlessly for the party. Here we are in power and what do we see today?”
“The Minister of Tourism turns to reward persons like Bill Asamoah who played no role or contributed a thing to the course of our campaign”
“If anyone deserves any form of honor we should recognise the works of persons like Matilda Asare, who campaigned for the NPP even when she was heavily pregnant, the likes of Agya Koo. These are the individuals who merits such honour”
