Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Ohene Agyapong has pointed accusing fingers at the Minister of Environment Science and Technology, Professor Frimpong Boateng.
According to the lawmaker, a company for the son of the minister, Jojo Frimpong Boateng is believed to be a part of illegal mining during the time his father was supposedly fighting the canker.
Speaking on a show on Net 2 television, Keneddy Agyapong said, it was not only the embattled Ekow Ewusi who is involved in the galamsey business; immediately stating that big NPP men were directly involved in the illegal mining business.

It has been alleged that Jojo Frimpong Boateng, through Ekow Ewusi, took custody of a number of seized excavators to use for his own mining activities at a time his father was said to be looking for the missing excavators.
“How can you seize people’s excavators for illegal mining and turn around to give it your son for his mining activities?” Kennedy Agyapong quizzed.
Frimpong Boateng has so far remained silent on the galamsey activities involving his own son.
