Founder and Leader of The Peoples’ Project (TPP) and self-styled anti-corruption campaigner Kwame Asare Obeng popularly known as APLUS has written what is seen by many as his response to a series of allegations by persons who have walked away from TPP and are making allegations against the movement and him as a founder.
A series of posts and reports emerged on social media over the past couple of weeks with the most latest being the video of one Don Kano who claimed to be the engine behind TPP labeling the entire TPP a “fraud and a scam” among a litany of allegations.
APLUS who took to his social media to write a piece which got his followers emotional said he has learnt to ignore and stay focused.
“It took me a lot of effort, perseverance and willpower to quit smoking. 🚬 To be honest, at a point I gave up trying to quit; I thought I’ll never be able to quit especially when I got to that point where I smoked more than a pack a day.” He wrote.
Without directly responding to any of the allegations, some social media users that post was a perfect response.
That is just about the same effort it took for me to learn how to ignore and focus!! I have read a lot of books 📚 which includes “Dealing with difficult people” -emotional intelligence by the Havard Business Review Press. (You can borrow it if you want to read).
Though I had read the saying ‘A moment of Patience in a moment of anger saves a thousand moments of Regret’ by Ali ibn Abi Taliba, cousin, son-in-law and companion of the prophet Muhammad, (sallallahu alayhi wa salaam) the emotional intelligence book by Havard Business Review press broadened my understanding of that saying. It also teaches us to accept our flaws as humans and to maturely understand that we are not perfect and humbly accept the truth irrespective of how hurting or revealing it may be.
I believe that it is only fair to talk about you and give you the platform and opportunity to also talk about me. Though I may not like or agree with what you say about me, I’ll honestly defend to death your fundamental human right to freedom of expression.
Time answers every question. With time, we have all realized that not a single guinea fowl flew to Burkina Faso and the “Papano” is not John Mahama. With time we have come to know that Akufo Addo is not and has never dealt in illegal drugs and did not kill his wife. These are just a fraction of the very painful things that were said about both of them. However, time has provided a perfect answer and a sweet victory.
If you are not just an expert in “aboa kwasia” or somebody who only knows how to scream on social media but spend just a few minutes of your time to “gym your brain” by reading books like the art of war by Sun Tzu and the 33 strategies of war by Robert Greene, you’ll know that, sometimes, it is better to allow the enemy to spend all their time, energy, resources and effort promoting the war while you quietly develop, build and maintain your arsenal to beat them.
And finally, let me say a big thank you to Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration – GIMPA. You educated me, changed everything for me. You have a special place in my heart ❤️
There is a lot of work to be done. Especially, a lot of lives to be touched. The good news is that most of you here on Facebook know that bra Kwame has touched your life directly or indirectly. Let’s all stay blessed. 🙌🏿🙏🏾 Time will tell…
Keep the faith 🙏🏾
