Top NPP officials implicated in galamsey – NDC’s
Listen to this article

The top executives of their main rivals are allegedly involved in the expanding galamsey threat, according to the Ashanti Region Communications Bureau of the major opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC).

The NDC specifically accused Dennis Kwakwa, the communication director for the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) Ashanti Region, of being “deeply involved in the galamsey menace, along with other top executives in the region.”

Kofi Asante Ennin, the host of Akoma FM’s GhanAkoma Aduanaba, asked Abass Nurudeen, the director of communication for the NDC in the Ashanti Region, to retract his statement because there was no support for it on his platform. Abass Nurudeen responded, “I know what I’m saying, Kofi. Although you are free to disagree with what I’m saying, it is not an allegation.

On the show on Tuesday, October 4, Mr Nurudeen stated that he is aware of this and has trustworthy information that almost all national and regional NPP executives hold concessions and are assiduously mining the Earth’s core for the precious metal at the expense of the environment.

Baafour Asaase Gyimah, a member of the NPP communication team, responded to the NDC allegations.

The NPP executive said, “I can categorically say none of the NPP executives I know are legitimately involved in small-scale mining but galamsey I doubt any of my executives will have himself involved,” adding that “even though

Mr Nurudeen is just making empty allegations, I will advise him to be careful because such insinuations can really cost you your political career.”

The topic of galamsey has gained attention recently, particularly after Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II intervened and questioned why the government’s numerous battles on the subject have been ineffective.

The NDC in the Ashanti Region, however, believes that Mr. Kwakwa and other top executives are driving the galamsey threat.
