- Andy Owusu, an aide to NPP official, Chairman Owusu, has been named in the galamsey expose' released by Anas Aremeyaw Anas
- Anas claimed that Owusu served as a link to Charles Bissue, the former IMCIM official
- He added that Owusu demanded GHC50,000 but eventually took GHC15,000 for his services
Investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas, has revealed the role played by Andy Owusu, an aide to Ashanti regional chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Bernard Antwi Boasiako, in his latest documentary.
Anas revealed that Owusu charged GHC50,000 for facilitating a meeting with the then secretary of the Inter-Ministerial Committee on Illegal Mining (IMCIM), Charles Bissue, but was paid GHC15,000. The GHC15,000, Anas explained, was part of a renegotiated amount of GHC40,000.
He went ahead to say that Owusu was the one who informed him of the amount Bissue was ready to accept to fast-track the acquisition of a mining license.
He added that Owusu also linked his team to “School Boy”, a national security operative whose task was to provide safety at the mining site.
Anas also indicated that Bissue took GHC35,000 from his team, and gave an assurance of getting ORR Resource Enterprise registered, as its mining license had expired.
Mynewsgh.com reports that Owusu, in his defense, claimed that he only served as an intermediary between the Anas’ team and Bissue.
Reacting to the issue, Wontumi claimed that he gave over GHC200,000 to Owusu before he left for London in December 2018.
The money, he said, was to be given to a selected number of people, including Bissue, as their Christmas presents.
Wontumi added that he planned to visit Bissue after his return to Ghana, but received a ‘thank you’ call from him during his time in London.
