Galamsey fight failed because of the greed & selfishness of Nana Addo-NDC
The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) says President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has never shown any commitment towards the fight against illegal mining popularly known as galamsey and corruption in general.
He said the galamsey scandal is a grand scheme by the president to enrich himself and top NPP officials.
This the party said informed the decision to form the Anti-galamsey inter-ministerial committee.
National Communication Officer Sammy Gyamfi at a press conference said the promise by the president to put his presidency in the line to end galamsey was a sham and a scam meant to deceive Ghanaians.
He said there were pieces of evidence to prove that the fight was heading in the wrong direction because the president failed to punish his appointees who were engaged in galamsey including Mr. Charlse Bissue, who he alleged was captured in an expose by Anas Aremeyaw Anas of accepting bribes to engage in the act.
He said the fight has failed because of the ”selfishness and greed of President Akufo-Addo and his cabal of family and friends”.
Mr. Gyamfi lamented that despite the support given the government by the media, traditional leaders, the opposition, he has failed and wasted the taxpayers’ money on the
He said ”this is a monumental betrayal of the trust of the Ghanaian… We had faith in him only for him to betray and defraud us”.
He insisted the president has failed Ghanaians because of his ”greed”.
In mincing no words, he said the president had stolen from the state through the numerous scandals that hit the nation including the cash for seat scandal.
He challenged the president to provide answers to the questions being asked by Ghanaians over the faces behind galamsey.
He further called for the immediate arrest and prosecution of Professor Frimpong Boateng, the Minister in charge of Science, Environment, Technology and Innovation.
He further threw slams at President Akufo-Addo saying he sees no wrong when his appointees engage in corruption.
