Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyepong, has once again called on President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to dismiss all members of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) who are still occupying positions at the various state institutions.
He said elements in the opposition NDC who are still at post are behind the secret audiovisual recording device planted in the office of the Minister of Lands and Natural Resources, John Peter Amewu. According to him, the intention is to thwart the Minister’s plans in the fight against illegal mining also known in Ghana as ‘galamsey’.
Kennedy Agyepong said though the NPP won the elections in 2016, the opposition NDC is still running affairs at almost all the state institutions in the country and this according to him is not in the interest of the government.
“I have called on Nana Addo to sack all NDC officials occupying state institutions. When the NDC were in power, they benefited from galamsey and thus didn’t make any effort to stop, but, since our new minster Mr Amewu is against galamsey, they have decided to destroy his plans by putting spying device in his office,” Mr. Agyepong stated on Adom TV’s Morning Show “Badwam” on Tuesday.
He said, the “NPP is in power but trust me, NDC is actually ruling the country because they have taken control of affairs of all state institutions in the country and causing problems for some NPP members at post”.
Kennedy Agyepong’s concerns were based on the audiovisual recording devices discovered in the office of the Minister for Lands and Natural Resources Minister, Mr. John Peter Amewu.
Former sector Minister, Inusah Fuseini has admitted planting the device which has been there since 2013. He said he forgot to notify his successor about it when he was reshuffled from that Ministry but insisted there devices were not working and so there was no cause for alarm.
He has also officially apologized to the current Minister.
The device included a camera, a storage unit and another device suspected to be a transmitter neatly housed in a black metal box and used batteries.
Mr Peter Amewu is currently championing the fight against illegal mining in the Ghana. When asked of his initial comments
