Galamsey fight: Content of leaked video wasn’t for public consumption – Omari Wadie

1 Mins read

A video making the rounds on social media seems to have questioned government’s willingness and commitment in the fight against illegal mining popularly known as galamsey in the country.

In the video, Horace Ekow Ewusi, the NPP former Vice Chairman of the Agona West Constituency, is heard discussing with Prof Kwabena Frimpong-Boateng, the Minister for Environment, Science and Technology, how they can engage with some party folks on some mining concessions in order to raise money from the activity to support the party.

Reacting to this on UTV, National 3rd Vice Chairman of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Micheal Omari Wadie said: “I have a problem with the fact that a Regional Chairman of the party will deliberately record a conversation with the Minister…the conversation that went on (in the video) wasn’t for public consumption”
