Collins Owusu Amankwah, Member of Parliament (MP) for the Manhyia North Constituency, has some missing excavators during the erstwhile John Mahama administration.

The lawmaker stated revealed that over 950 excavators were stolen and shared among National Democratic Congress(NDC) foot soldiers during their tenure of office.

He alleged that the opposition party stole the excavators from illegal miners during an exclusive interview with Kwame Tanko on Angel 96.1 FM’s flagship program, Angel in the Morning.

The Manhyia MP said the the former National Security Coordinator, Lt. Col. Larry Gbevlo Lartey led the stealing and was assisted by the former Deputy Ashanti Regional Minister, Joseph Yammin under the pretense to stop illegal mining.

“We were in this country when the NDC set up Anti-Galamsey Taskforce and it was led by Lt. Col. Gbevlo Lartey; Yammin and others were all part. When they went to seize 950 excavators, ask yourself where they are; they burnt some, including Chairman Wontumi’s own as a camouflage; they deceived us; they shared them among their foot soldiers and today these people think they have the moral right to talk about ‘galamsey’; it’s a big shame!”, Mr Owusu Amankwaa said.

Hon. Collins Owusu Amankwaa the figure of missing excavators put out in the media engineered by the NDC just to make this government unpopular.

Reacting to the allegation on Angel News, Joseph Yammin debunked the allegation and said there are records at the Ashanti Regional Coordinating Council covering every single excavator that was seized under his watch and the number of persons who were arrested and deported from Ghana for their involvement in illegal mining activities.
