- The NDC secretary has condemned the Chinese loan that was signed on government’s behalf by Vice President Bawumia
- He said the vice president’s trip to China is to restore relations over their failure to keep their promise regarding galamsey activities by Chinese nationals
- Dr. Bawumia has however said the loan from China will not affect the anti-galamsey initiative
The Deputy General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress has accused the Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia of travelling to China to apologize for failing to fulfill the promises made during their campaign.
According to Mr. Anyidoho, the New Patriotic Party government promised to overlook Chinese nationals engaging in the galamsey activies, if their campaign was supported.
However since Ghanaians started a coalition to fight against the illegal mining menace, Mr. Anyidoho opined that the government has had to rush to the Chinese government to restore their relations.
Mr. Anyidoho in an interview on Okay FM, further advised Ghanaians not to keep their hopes up as the government will probably not receive the loan.
“Since when did they believe prayer is important? On May Day Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo told Ghanaian workers that they pray too much and must stop. When Mills used to pray at the castle these same people started accusing him of turning the seat of government into a church. These same people have now made a sudden U-turn and want Ghanaians to pray for the government. It was after this I realized the NPP has hit it's sad end,” he said.
Mr. Anyidoho’s remarks follow the announcement by the vice president of government's decision to sign a loan deal of $15 billion dollars from China to facilitate the one-district-one-factory project.
Despite the backlash the government has received over the deal, Vice President Bawumia has debunked any 'backdoor motives' behind the generous gesture from the Chinese government.
He explained it had nothing to do with the Anti-galamsey Initiative, and that this contract will in no way affect the fight against the illegal mining menace.
