A Yoruba proverb I cherish much says "Gbogbo alangba lo d'anu dele, a ko mo eyi t'inu nrun" literally translated as " All lizards lie flat on their stomach and it is difficult to determine which has a stomach ache". The meaning of the proverb is that everyone looks the same on the outside but everyone has problems that are invisible to outsiders. This is exactly the case of the Bono Regional NPP Chairman popularly known as Abronye.
His recent comments on Wontumi TV concerning government officials deeply engaged in galamsey thereby impeding government's progress in curbing the menace has landed him into trouble as the youth of the Bono Region have vowed to impeach him should he step his foot into the region. Excerpts of what he alleged are found below:
According to Abronye, despite the fight by the government, some officials are still engaged in the act.
Speaking on Wuntumi Radio, he fingered the Head of monitoring and Evaluation at the Ministry of land and Natural resources as one of the people who are fighting against the galamsey fight.
He explained that not only is he engaged in galamsey but he also chops down trees in the forest which he sells to people.
He said: “Head of Monitoring and Evaluation at the Ministry of Lands and Natural Resources is deeply involved in galamsey. A ministry that is fighting galamsey has its monitoring and evaluation boss involved in the act they are fighting. He Dows the galamsey with some big man at the Adamso forest in Obuasi”
By the way, do you think it is good to name and shame public figures hindering the fight against galamsey as Abronye did? Let me know your comments. Click and like for Lollapalooza news
