NDC Youth calls for investigation and prosecution of NPP's Nana B over alleged involvement in galamsey
The Youth Wing of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has called for the investigation and prosecution of the National Youth Organizer of the New Patriotic Party (NDC), Henry Nana Boakye alias Nana B over his alleged involvement in illegal mining 'galamsey'.
This was after they took note of a video recording of Hon Kennedy Agyapong MP for Assin North, accusing Nana B of being a Galamsey Kingpin.
Ghana has in the past few months seen a resurgence of illegal small scale mining, an activity which was curbed following a fierce campaign waged by government in collaboration with the media and civil society organisations.
This has been worsened by some missing excavators seized by the Operation Vanguard as part of the clamp-down on illegal mining, triggering a probe by the Police Criminal Investigations Department.
In a release signed by National Youth Organizer of the party George Opare Addo, they said “ordinarily we won't take the accusation very seriously because Hon. Kennedy Agyepong makes a lot of unsubstantiated allegations but because of the sensitive nature of these particular allegations and how excavators have gone missing it is worth looking into.”
