President Akufo-Addo says his government will not shield anyone who is found guilty in the missing excavators saga.
The President said this while delivering the State of the Nation Address in Parliament today February 20, 2020.
He said anyone found guilty will be made to face prosecution irrespective of their party affiliation.
He also said the National Democratic Congress (NDC) gave up the fight against galamsey but his government is determined to tackle the menace to the core.
It will be recalled that in January this year, Kwabena Frimpong-Boateng Minister for Environment, Science, Technology & Innovation and also Chairperson for the Inter-Ministerial Committee on Illegal Mining (IMCIM) disclosed that most of the excavators that were seized from illegal miners have vanished.
That informed the police and some arrest have been made so far, New Patriotic Party’s Central Regional Vice Chairman, Horace Ekow Ewusi being arrested as well.
