It’s interesting to see excavators flying around like Guinea fowls – Solomon Nkansah jabs

The former National Communications Officer of the NDC, Solomon Nkansah is amazed at how corruption has become a norm under the Nana Addo-led government.

According to him, the fight against illegal mining also known as ‘galamsey’ which became prominent in the country was laudable – but issues emanating from it now are “unfortunate and appalling”.

“It’s amazing how seized excavators are flying around like guinea fowls,” Solomon Nkansah said on NEAT FM’s morning show ‘Ghana Montie’.

His comment comes after the Criminal Investigations Department [CID] of the Ghana Police Service arrested Horace Ekow Ewusi, over missing excavators seized in the clampdown on illegal mining ‘galamsey’.

The embattled Vice Chairman was interrogated over his role in some missing excavators and other equipment seized from illegal mining operators.

The arrest follows a request made to the CID by the Minister of Environment, Science and Technology, Professor Kwabena Frimpong Boateng.

According to the letter written by the Minister, Mr Ewusi was contracted to cart excavators and pieces of equipment seized by Operation Vanguard to designated areas for safekeeping.

The Minister’s letter said the Ministry had received information that he sent an unknown number of equipment to the unauthorized location including one in Tema and some parts of the country.
