President Nana Akufo-Addo has summoned the DCE for Bosome Freho, Hon Yaw Danso in the Ashanti Region after a viral tape implicated him of illegal mining.
Yaw Danso is alleged to have been involved in dodgy dealings and transactions linked to mining concessions within his jurisdiction.
President Akufo-Addo, who confirmed this development during a meeting with MMDCEs from mining locations in Kumasi, said the government appointee has been referred to the local government minister for questioning.
“Your colleague in Bosome Freho has been summoned by the minister for local government to come and answer [questions over the public accusations]” Akufo-Addo said. “And depending on the quality of his response, we will decide what the future holds for him.”
He said he will not shield anybody found culpable in the fight against illegal mining, popularly known as galamsey.
Responding to this, Assemblyman for Moronto Electoral Area in Bosome Freho District, Hon De-Graft Boakye Maxwell has hinted to that, they are happy about the move from President Akufo Addo.
