Member of Parliament (MP) for the Manhyia North Constituency, Collins Owusu Amankwaa has accused the National Democratic Congress (NDC) for looting and sharing 950 excavators while in power.
According to the Member of Parliament for Manhyia North, those excavators were shared among their foot soldiers to engage in illegal mining activities.
As reported by MyNewsGh.com, while he was speaking on Kumasi-based Angel FM, he said the looting was spearheaded by the former National Security Coordinator, Lt. Col. Larry Gbevlo Lartey and assisted by Joseph Yammin.
Collins Owusu Amankwaa was commenting on the current issue about the missing some excavators numbering about 500 and said the figure was made up by the NDC.
“We were in this country when the NDC set up Anti-Galamsey Taskforce and it was led by Lt. Col. Gbevlo Lartey; Yammin and others were all part.
When they went to seize 950 excavators, ask yourself where they are; they burnt some, including Chairman Wontumi’s own as a camouflage; they deceived us; they shared them among their foot soldiers and today these people think they have the moral right to talk about ‘galamsey’; it’s a big shame!”, Mr Owusu Amankwaa said.
