Frimpong-Boateng “Galamsey” Report: Government Must Probe Allegations – Samoa-Addo



A member of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Nii Kpakpo Samoa Addo has called for the establishment of a commission of inquiry into the alleged involvement of some government officials in illegal mining also known as galamsey.

It follows allegations by former minister and chairman of the dissolved Inter-Ministerial Committee on Illegal Mining (IMCIM), Prof Frimpong-Boateng in a 37-page report to President Akufo-Addo, accusing some government officials of plotting to bring him down over the fight against illegal mining.

The report made several allegations against some government and political party officials who allegedly made various attempts to thwart his efforts in clamping down on illegal mining in the country.

“We all have to be brutally frank with ourselves on this situation. Professor Frimpong-Boateng could not have produced this report in a vacuum. Are we saying that he just got up and decided to write a report without being requested to? He is not a novice,” Samoa-Addo said on Asaase 99.5 Accra’s news analysis show, The Forum, on Saturday (22 April),
