The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) Member of Parliament for the Builsa South Constituency in the Upper East Region, Dr. Clement Apaak has berated the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) and President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo for the recent comments by the Senior Minister, Yaw Osafo Maafo on the the arrest of Chinese woman Aisha Huang.
According to Dr, Apaak the Senior Minister clearly conveyed and communicated what the Akufo-Addo led government took into account with regards to the decision to free and deport the woman who has become known as the galamsey queen.
The former presidential staffer opined in a statement on the subject that the government seems to be oblivious of the dangers involved in breaking the country’s laws, particularly those regarding the rivers and forests.
Read his statement below:
Folks, Senior Minister Osafo-Maafo knew and meant exactly what he said.
Osafo-Maafo is a senior government official and clearly communicated what the NADAA government took into account regarding the decision to free and deport the Chinese Galamsey Queen!
The laws of Ghana don’t matter, the rivers of Ghana don’t matter, the forest doesn’t matter, poisoning our water bodies with mercury doesn’t matter, and birthing babies with deformities doesn’t matter to the NADAA government as long as your nation of origin is funding infrastructure in Ghana. Thus, money from China matters!
Ghanaians involved in Galamsey can rot in jail but a notorious Chinese Galamsey Queen can walk free!
