NDC Name Top Officials Involved In Galamsey In Ashanti Region

The Ashanti Region Communications Bureau of the major opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) is alleging top executives of their archrivals are neck-deep in the growing galamsey menace.

The NDC specifically pointed fingers at New Patriotic Party (NPP) Ashanti Region Communication Director Dennis Kwakwa as “deeply involved in the galamsey menace including other top executives in the region”.

When probed by host of Akoma FM‘s GhanAkoma Aduanaba Kofi Asante Ennin to withdraw his comment because his platform has no evidence to his claims, Director of Communication for NDC in Ashanti Region Abass Nurudeen insisted that “I know what I’m saying Kofi. You can disassociate yourself from what I’m saying but it’s not mere allegation”.

Mr Nurudeen while speaking on the show Tuesday, October 4, explained that he is aware and has reliable information that almost all the national and regional executives of the NPP have concessions and are assiduously digging into the Earth’s belly for the precious metal at the expense of the ecology.

Reacting to the NDC allegations was member of the NPP communication team, Baafour Asaase Gyimah.

He explained that “though Mr Nurudeen is just making empty allegations, I will advise him to be careful because such insinuations can really cost you your political career but I can categorically say none of the NPP executives I know are legitimately involved in small-scale mining but galamsey I doubt any of my executives will have himself involved”.

The issue of galamsey has been topical in recent times especially when the Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II waded into the topic and quizzed why government’s numerous fights on galamsey have proven futile.

Ghanaians Are Suffering Everyday Under Our Economic Situation Worse – John Mahama

Former President, John Dramani Mahama who also doubles as the leader of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has once again lamented the country’s economic woes.

Mr. Mahama in a Twitter post on Tuesday noted that the economic situation is “distressing” and getting worse by the day.

The NDC flagbearer for the 2020 elections called on the government to, promptly and with eagerness, secure a programme from the IMF to stabilize the country’s economy.

“Distressing! Every passing day makes our economic situation worse. Gov’t must work with greater alacrity to lock in a programme with the Fund in order to create a more predictable economic outlook,” John Mahama tweeted on Tuesday.

The rating downgrade to CAA2, it said, reflects the recent macroeconomic deterioration, further heightening the government’s liquidity and debt sustainability difficulties and increasing the risk of default.

This follows the recent downgrade of Ghana’s credit rating to ‘CC’ from ‘CCC’ by Fitch.
