Frimpong-Boateng’s response to Oppong Nkrumah

Frimpong-Boateng - Rapid news GH

Greetings, Mr. Oppong Nkrumah

I’ve read what you said in response to what I said in the report I gave the chief of staff a little more than two years ago.

It’s understandable that you would dispute what I wrote. In your situation, very few people will take responsibility for their mistakes.

But I have some wise counsel for you. We were colleagues while I worked for the government, and I regarded you as such. like my son, I will now give you advice, just like I do for my kids.

You share the same age as my fourth-born son, after all. You were my fourth child and only six years old when I started the cardiothoracic project after returning to Ghana from Germany. I won’t mislead you, call you names, or treat you harshly.

Always keep in mind that political power is ephemeral and fleeting, is my counsel.

You might not be in office in around two years, at which point you might live in the same society as former prominent political figures.

I shall implore you to work hard and refrain from using the subterfuge and nasty strategies that Mr. Paul Adom Okyere boastfully and shamelessly revealed to the world on ‘Good Evening Ghana’ that you use to deal with your actual and imagined opponents.
Let me briefly discuss illicit mining.

Someone from your constituency emailed me a video of illegal mining operations in your hometown last week. I’d like not to accept that what was mentioned regarding your involvement is accurate.

The important thing is that Chinese and their Ghanaian collaborators are engaged in illegal mining at your doorstep. I encourage you to investigate it and take appropriate action.

The President of the Republic assures Ghanaians again and again that he is serious with the fight against Illegal mining.

As you well know, illegal mining does not only refer to non-possession of a concession or mining permits but also the following:

1. Mining close to water bodies

2. Diversion of tailings into water bodies

3. Mining in the water bodies

4. Use of dangerous chemicals such as mercury and cyanide

5. Engagement of foreigners in small scale mining

6. Non-reclamation of mined out areas.

Have a blessed day.
