Galamsay Fight: Akufo-Addo Can’t Be Trusted – Former Ambassador To US

What's undiplomatic about <a class=Akufo-Addo's booing - Ohene Agyekum asks"/>

Ghana’s former Ambassador to the United States (US), Daniel Ohene Agyekum says President Akufo-Addo cannot be trusted with regards to his commitment to fight illegal mining in the country.

He says the President’s inactions relative to the illegal mining, alias Galamsay, leaves much to be desired and that his recent speech about the same is nothing but mere rhetoric which will yield no result.

Ambassador Ohene Agyakum made these remarks in response to President Akufo-Addo’s recent meeting with the National House of Chiefs in Kumasi.

Speaking on Kumasi-based Ultimate FM, Ohene Agyakum, who was also the former Ashanti Regional Minister, described the president’s recent action on the matter as deceitful.

”I am telling you, this president is a con man, wanting to be believed with his speeches but he cannot be trusted.

”The president is my age mate, I am older than him by two years, but his actions and utterance leaves much to be desired in this galamsay fight and his leadership.

”How can he say he wants evidence, when people right under his nose are involved in galamsay, I don’t get it, I don’t understand this.

”The Bosome Freho, guy, is on tape, and he is saying he needs evidence, what again does he need”, he said on Thursday, October 6, 2022.
