Kwame Governs Agbodza, NDC Member of Parliament for Adaklu in the Volta Region has blamed the governing NPP for turning the renowned heart surgeon Professor Frimpong Boateng in a ‘galamsey mafia’.
In a viral video that is making waves on social media, Professor Frimpong Boateng is allegedly heard discussing with NPP’s Central Regional Vice Chair, Ekow Ewusie ways to allocate mining concessions to members of the NPP to help raise funds for the party.
Two leading members of the NPP – General Secretary John Boadu and Ashanti Regional Chairman, Chairman Wontumi – were also named in the secret recording.
But speaking on TV3 monitored by Newsgogh.com, Mr Agbodza said “If president Akufo Addo wants us to see that he is serious about fighting the galamsey menace, he should arrest Professor Frimpong Boateng”.
“The NPP have now turned Professor Frimpong Boateng in a galamsey mafia, we all know Professor Frimpong didn’t return to this country to do politics but the NPP has succeeded in destroying his image”.
