The Communications Officer for the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Sammy Gyamfi does not find the Attorney General’s response to demands by the opposition for his resignation satisfactory.
Sammy Gyamfi expressed his concern over the Attorney-General’s decision to clear government officials of allegations of being complicit in illegal mining activities made by former Environment Minister, Prof Kwabena Frimpong Boateng, despite what he says is the ‘substantial evidence’ available to the public.
During a discussion on Joy FM, the Deputy Attorney General, Alfred Tuah Yeboah reiterated that their office lacked sufficient evidence to prosecute the individuals named in the report.
He emphasised, “It is only an irresponsible Attorney General who, in the face of all these official documents which I just came across in the last 48 hours while investigating this matter, would come on air and pretend to be ignorant of these well-known facts and say, ‘I’m not aware. I’m waiting for Sammy Gyamfi to provide me with fresh evidence.”
“I want to reiterate an advice which has been given to my good brother, Lawyer Tuah Yeboah by my senior Martin Kpebu. We all know him as a perfect gentleman. I don’t know why he’s allowed himself to be used for this cover-up. His boss issued this statement, why is his boss not on-air defending it? Such a gentleman is being used to defend this. He is not doing any good to him self. Very sad,” he added.
