The nonconformist government official said the obliteration of water bodies in the nation brought about by galamsey is dampening to such an extent that individuals living in rustic zones will soon not get water to drink.
As far as he might be concerned, if the president is battling the ulcer and he doesn't pursue his own gathering leaders, the battle will fall flat in light of the fact that there are top gathering authorities who have concessions and are participating in unlawful mining and attacking the battle against the illicit furrowing of land for gold.
“I pity President Akufo-Addo because with this fight if the president does not clean his house we will not win the fight against galamsey. If I tell you the number of top NPP officials who are doing galamsey whom I fought and failed, you’ll be shocked,” Agyapong disclosed.
He contended that it was a decent move for the public authority team to consume earthmovers seized from illicit diggers in timberland holds and around streams.
“They have to burn the excavators or some of our people will go and sell them in Cote D’Ivoire or return them back to their owners,” the MP noted with worry that his party officials are not honest enough to confiscate the heavy machines and keep them without being compromised.
Kennedy Agyapong additionally unveiled that there are Government authorities who are likewise into illicit mining in light of the fact that a large portion of the top NPP authorities are likewise into unlawful business.
Aside from some NDC individuals he knew are into unlawful mining, Agyapong said "I know a great deal of MCEs who are doing galamsey. President Akufo-Addo you need to clean your home else we won't win this battle."
His remarks come after the new Minister for Lands and Natural Resources Minister, Samuel Abu Jinapor has pronounced conflict against galamsey.
Up until now, more than 25 backhoes having a place with supposed illicit diggers have been obliterated in the Eastern Region.
Effectively most Ghanaians question the public authority's capability to battle unlawful mining as a result of previous occasions when top government nominees were found in recordings talking about how seized earthmovers would be utilized to dig and get cash for the gathering.
Educator Frimpong Boateng, Ekow Ewusie, NPP General Secretary John Buadu, NPP National Women Organizer Kate Gyamfua are affirmed to be participating in unlawful mining, making it hard for the public authority to clip down on the culprits of the wrongdoing.
