'I will not be intimidated by your vile attacks' - Deputy chief of staff tells A Plus

In a reply on Facebook, Mr Asenso-Boakye, who doubles as president Akufo-Addo's political assistant, called A Plus' comments as "infantile and opprobrious rants."

"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," he said.

According to Mr Asenso-Boakye, he will not be intimidated or held to ransom by A Plus while urging him to harness his potential more productively.

"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," he said.

"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."

He also challenged A Plus to report him to the president if he has any evidence he is engaged in corruption or scandalous activities.

"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," he said.

He added: "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'"

A Plus in a post that has been deleted on Sunday the presidents two deputy chief of staffs as "very stupid."

The unprovoked attacks come just after the governing New Patriotic Party's delegates conference in the Central Region.

"7 months of NPP government. So far so good except appointing some very corrupt officials including the two very stupid chief of staffs," A Plus wrote on Facebook."It's amazing how Nana was able to appoint two thieves whose level of stupidity is the same. Arrogant and corrupt fools."
