Galamsey: All Missing Excavators Would Be Brought Back Soon – Frimpong-Boateng

Published

on

All seized mining excavators that have gone missing will soon be found, according to Professor Kwabena Frimpong-Boateng, the Minister for Environment, Science, Technology, and Innovation.

According to him, the country’s security agencies are following up on the issue closely and will soon bring it to its logical conclusion.

The sector minister who has come under serious attack from a section of the public over his inability to account for all the equipment seized from illegal miners said he is confident that all equipment will be found.

He told journalists on Thursday that “every excavator that has been stolen will be found…I don’t want to overstep what the security people are doing so let us be patient. You will get the facts pretty soon.”

It was revealed that the excavators seized by Operation Vanguard from illegal miners and some small scale mining companies which flouted the ban on small scale mining had gone missing.

There are allegations that some top members of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) are involved in illegal mining and they have appropriated some of the excavators amongst themselves despite the public campaign against the practice.

The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) had said that the government’s ban on small scale mining was only a “smokescreen” to kick out other miners and allow persons aligned to the NPP space to mine clandestinely whilst the ban was still in force.

Joojo Frimpong-Boateng, son of the Minister is amongst those accused of being involved in illegal mining and using a missing excavator for the act in some of the country’s forest reserves.

But the Minister said the allegation against his son is false.

“He [Jojo Frimpong-Boateng] is not involved in anything and the world will get to know soon,” the Minister said.

Meanwhile, the suspended First Vice-Chairman of the NPP in the Central Region, Horace Ekow Ewusi who has become the centre of the controversial issue of the missing equipment has been captured in a viral video allegedly claiming that he together with the NPP General Secretary, Boadu were tasked by the sector minister to use the seized excavators to mine in various concessions.

The money raised from these activities, Mr. Ewusi alleged would help fund the political activities of the NPP.

John Boadu subsequently denied the allegation.

 

Investigate Ekow Ewusi

Prof. Kwabena Frimpong-Boateng had petitioned the Criminal Investigations Department of the Ghana Police Service to investigate Horace Ekow Ewusi over his alleged involvement in the missing earth-moving equipment.

Ekow Ewusi was contracted by the government to cart excavators and other vehicles and pieces of equipment seized by Operation Vanguard to designated areas for safekeeping.

So far, six persons arrested over the disappearance of the missing equipment have been granted bail.

Akufo-Addo has become stubborn, he no longer listens to God – Prophet Owusu Bempah

Prophet Isaac Owusu Bempah has disclosed that he no longer has a close relationship with President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo because the president is no longer listening to God.

In an interview posted on the YouTube channel of RTV Ghana, the preacher is heard lamenting how Akufo-Addo’s countenance towards matters of God has dipped.

Asked whether he was mistaken to have backed the President spiritually in his days in opposition, Bempah insisted that he did what was told to him by God at the time.

He likened his current relationship with the president to that of Saul and Samuel in the Bible, positing that he was Samuel – a man simply directed by God to anoint His chosen one. While Akufo-Addo was Saul – the chosen one who disobeyed God and was visited with hard times.

“Samuel was asked to anoint Saul to become King, things did not go well, things went rough and that was because Saul became stubborn and was not listening to God and Samuel, so Samuel distanced himself from Saul.

“When Samuel tried to intervene at a point, God asked him to stay off because Saul had showed disobedience and so I see that the pure heart Akufo-Addo for which God chose him, has changed.

“He doesn’t listen to God anymore, and the prayers that clergymen used to say for him, he doesn’t allow it any longer. So, if you like him to Saul, it is the same thing, Samuel was only instructed by God to anoint Saul because he was God’s own choice,” Prophet Isaac Owusu Bempah stressed.

It’s a done deal for NDC in 2024 if you go back to IMF – Kennedy Agyapong to NPP

It’s a done deal for NDC in 2024 if you go back to IMF – Kennedy Agyapong to NPP

Firebrand and a Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong has gone haywire over the government’s decision to seek a bailout from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) warning of dire consequences for the party ahead of the 2024 general elections.

Without mincing words, the NPP financier explains after all the ‘noise’ he made against the Mahama government for lack of policy credit; the Akufo-Addo government is disappointing to him and many Ghanaians for following suit.

“It is just like handing over power to NDC without a contest, straight away because of the noise we made, and I chew my own words back when I said the NDC went to IMF because of mismanagement of the economy. So if NPP is going to IMF, what am I going to say?”, Ken Agyapong quizzed.

“So breaking the 8 is going to be tough, my message to you is simple, you cannot read my lips and I am not scared of anybody in the party, I will tell you the gospel truth, those who take you to IMF cannot break the 8,” he said this during a meeting with some NPP party members.

In a release issued on Friday, the Minister for Information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah announced that President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has directed Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta to commence official engagements with the International Monetary Fund for a financial bailout.
