The Member of Parliament for Builsa South, Clement Apaak has called for an investigation into some comments made by the former Minister under President Akufo-Addo government regarding illegal mining.

Former Minister for Environment, Science and Technology, Prof Kwabena Frimpong Boateng, last week, alleged that there are many top government officials engaged in the canker popularly known as ‘galamsey’.

The renowned professor who served under President Akufo-Addo insists that the rot goes as high as the government seat, Jubilee House.

“Let me tell you that I did not take one excavator for anything, they know the truth. Now things are coming up, we know those who are behind it and the party people who are there, people in government including Jubilee House who are doing galamsey and so on, even now,” he said on GBC.

But Mr Apaak believes this assertion is enough grounds to commence a full-blown investigation.

According to him Ghanainas shouldn’t take the words for granted

“We DEMAND an investigation into allegations by Prof. Boateng, a former NPP Minister, then head of the anti-galamsey fight, that “People in the NPP, people in gov’t and people at Jubilee House are engaged in galamsey”. Galamsey is a crime and those involved must be punished.

In an interview with Okay FM monitored by MyGhanaMedia.com, the Builsa South MP explained that the investigative bodies owe Ghanaians a duty to get to the bottom of the matter.

“Ghanaians expect the requisite state agencies/institutions (OSP, BIN, CID) to show loyalty to Ghana by initiating investigations into the allegations made by Prof. Boateng. By his stature and previous position in this NPP gov’t, these allegations cannot and must not be ignored,” he wrote.

During the interview with GBC, Prof Frimpong Boateng further suggested that it was his effort that prevented the forest reserves from further dissipation by these government officials for which reason there are reports of breaches now that he is no more in office.

“There was an orchestrated scheme, even within the party and government to get me out. Why is it that when I left now everyone is in the forest?” he added.
