Former Minister for Lands and Natural Resources, Alhaji Inusah Fuseini has asked the Minister for Environment, Science, Technology and Innovation, Professor Frimpong Boateng to resign from his position or be sacked.
The former Minister under the erstwhile Mahama administration says Frimpong Boateng must resign because the damage caused to his integrity following the release of a viral video of him in discussion with one Ekow Ewusi over a galamsey concession is irreparable.
Prof. Frimpong Boateng, who also Chairs the Inter-Ministerial Committee against Illegal Mining (IMCIM) was allegedly heard in a viral video discussing concessions of mining sites with the a suspended regional executive of the governing New Patriotic Party.
The development comes days after the Inter-Ministerial Committee Chairman made a disclosure that about 500 seized excavators by Operation Vanguard, the task force set up to put an end to the illegal mining menace in the country have gone missing.
Prof Frimpong Boateng later wrote to the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) to arrest and investigate Horace Ekow Ewusi after learning that he reportedly sold some of the confiscated items from the illegal miners.
