Dr. Cassiel Ato Forson, the minority leader in parliament, has criticized President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and his administration for their chaotic battle over Galamsey.
He claimed that the government’s promise to combat unlawful mining was a lie.
Speaking on the study on illicit mining that was leaked, Professor Kwabena Frimpong Boateng, a former minister of science, environment, and technology, claimed that the government was participating in the galamsey war.
Dr. Forson claimed in a Facebook post that Prof. Frimpong’s discovery is compelling evidence that the galamsey battle was nothing more than a staged event. He calls it outright as being fraudulent.
“Prof. Frimpong-Boateng’s report to the President on failed work of the Inter-Ministerial Committee on Illegal Mining, which was set up by President Akufo-Addo to fight the illegal mining menace, confirms that the whole fight was a fraudulent one”, he wrote.
