  |   Ghana News

Chiefs at Jacobu in the Amansie Central District of the Ashanti Region last week left the Minister of Minister of Chieftaincy and Traditional Affairs, Kofi Dzamesi and his delegation in shock when they fingered two key figures of the current administration engaging in illegal mining despite the ban. The angry chiefs said the Chief Executive Officer of Forestry Commission, Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie has betrayed his country on his job as the commissioner

According to the chiefs, Sir John and the Ashanti Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Mr. Bernard Antwi Boasiako aka chairman Wontumi have become the bad nuts in the current government, sabotaging the country’s quest for development in its fight against illegal mining. The chiefs alleged that, Sir John and his accomplice Chairman Wontumi have been carrying out illegal mining activities in the forest reserve of the area in the name of reclamation.

The traditional rulers also added that, Operation Vanguard (OV) who are supposed to arrest them have been offering protection instead.
