- The special economic advisor to the vice president accused the Mahama administration of selling 58% of Ghana's bauxite to Ibrahim Mahama
- The former DCE has however debunked government's 'untrue' claims
- He warned them not involve the former president's brother in 'their mess'
Dr. Martin Luther Obeng, the former District Chief Executive for Agona East has lambasted the special economic advisor to the Vice President, Dr. Gideon Boako for shaming the erstwhile Mahama administration for allegedly selling 58% of the country's bauxite to Ibrahim Mahama.
According to the former DCE, the accusations were false, and he warned the current government not to involve former president's brother into their crisis.
In report by Peace FM, Dr. Obeng further criticized the government for not being forward about the deal between Ghana and the Chinese government.
He stated Akufo-Addo administration should be honest and call the contract with the Chinese government a loan, as that is what it really is, and not a partnership as it is being called.
Dr. Obeng was responding to the Vice President's special advisor's remarks, that the previous Mahama government entered a deal with Ibrahim Mahama in the sale of about 58 percent of the country's bauxite concession.
"I want to ask the former Minister which part of the concession did they sell to the brother of the former President…? They sold 58 percent on 29th December 2016 when they were leaving office. The NDC government sold 58 percent of our bauxite concession to the former President’s brother. The one they sold to him, was it possible to mine or not. They should stop this argument," Dr. Boako said.
Meanwhile, 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.
Mr. Anyidoho opined that the government had to rush to the Chinese government to restore their relations, since their 'promise' to overlook Chinese nationals engaging in galamsey could not be fulfilled.
