Aisha Huang: Kojo Oppong Nkrumah Defends Akufo-Addo’s Gaffe On Illegal Mining 'Queen'
YEN.com.gh has reported in a previous story that Minister of Information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, has defended comments by President Nana Akufo-Addo on notorious Chinese illegal miner, Aisha Huang.
Aisha Huang’s re-arrest earlier this year triggered a huge national debate because she was found to be still engaged in destructive illegal mining practices that triggered her deportation from Ghana in 2018.
It emerged in court after her re-arrest that after she was driven out from Ghana, she returned to the country through an unapproved route via Togo on Ghana's border to the east.
Because she was not charged for her crimes in 2018, many people blamed Senior Minister Yaw Osafo-Maafo, for pushing for her to be deported without charges.
The Chinese national’s re-arrest also triggered concerns about whether she was really deported from the country the first time.
Touching on the matter during an interview on a radio programme in the Volta Region on Tuesday, September 13, 2022, the president stated that he was not sure if the illegal miner was deported or she fled.
