Assin Central Member of Parliament (MP), Kennedy Ohene Agyapong has alleged that the National Youth Organiser of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Henry Nana Boakye, also known as Nana B is part of the group of ‘top guys’ in the country engaged in galamsey.
Speaking on Net 2 TV on Wednesday monitored by GhanaNewsPage.Com, Ken Agyapong claimed that Nana B has been engaging in illegal mining in the country.
GhanaNewsPage.Com cannot independently confirm this claim of the MP.
He claimed that Nana B has a galamsey site in Amenfi Central in the Western Region.
“If the NPP does not talk to Frimpong Boateng, when I start defending myself, I will expose lots of things, even if Nana B is involved in galamsey…when you go to Amenfi Central, you will see this…,” he said in the video published below.
President Nana Akufo-Addo during the presentation of the 2020 State of the Nation Address (SONA) called on the Media Coalition against Galamsey not to give up on the fight against galamsey adding that the government has not weakened its stance on fight against illegal mining.
“Government will not weaken its stance, and welcomes the continuous support of the Media Coalition,” he said.
The statement followed recent media reports that the fight against galamsey seemed to have hit the rocks.
