-An NDC official, Sammy Gyamfi, has accused the government of selling Ghana to the Chinese
- He explained that the manner in which the government handled the Aisha Huang case supports his argument
- He went on to say the Chinese are taking advantage of Ghana's resources in exchange for the construction of roads
The director of communications of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Sammy Gyamfi, has claimed the government is planning to hand over Ghana to the Chinese.
He explained that the Chinese have been given the space to play with Ghana’s resources in exchange for money.
Gyamfi went on to say the Akufo-Addo-led government has clearly shown that it is indifferent about Ghana’s natural resources.
“If the Chinese illegal miners will destroy our forest, it is nothing to worry about simply because the Chinese Synohydro is coming to construct roads for us; because of money, how?” Gyamfi wondered.
His comments follow remarks by the senior minister, Yaw Osafo Maafo, to the effect that prosecuting Chinese national, Aisha Huang for illegal mining, will not economically benefit Ghana.
Addressing a town hall meeting abroad, Osafo Maafo added that the state did not prosecute Aisha Huang because it wanted to keep its diplomatic relationship with China intact.

Per a report by Pulse.com.gh, Gyamfi said, by taking such an action, the Akufo-Addo government sold Ghana’s birthright to the Chinese.
“ . . but our own senior minister says because of money, like Esau in the Bible sold his birthright to his younger brother, Jacob because of food, this government led by President Akufo-Addo says because of money, they don’t care if our water bodies would be destroyed or not,” Gyamfi said on Accra-based Okay FM.
Gyamfi also accused the government of giving away Ghana’s forests and water bodies to the Chinese in exchange for the $2 billion Synohydro deal.
According to him, the Chinese stand to gain more from the Sinohydro deal, further alleging that the country’s bauxite is being used to pay for the deal.
