Speaking on Adom FM’s Dwaso Nsem monitored by MyNewsGh.com, the NPP Director of Communications, Yaw Buaben Asamoa, noted that Prof. Frimpong-Boateng himself raised the issue of the missing excavators for investigations, an act that tells how worried he was about the matter.
“Prof. Frimpong-Boateng raised that matter himself, nobody did that for him. So as far as I’m concerned, Prof. Frimpong-Boateng’s integrity is intact. So the question is what should be done after the matter has been raised?” He quizzed.
But Mr. Asamoa said he was optimistic the matter would not be swept under the carpet as purported by the opposition National Democratic Congress since the persons involved have been arrested.
“The fact is, some of the excavators have been found and the people involved have been arrested, including some party members,” he said.
Prof. Frimpong-Boateng in a viral video is heard discussing with Mr. Ekow Ewusi, NPP’s Central Regional Vice Chair, ways to allocate mining concessions to members of the NPP to help raise funds for the party.
Two leading members of the NPP – General Secretary John Boadu and Ashanti Regional Chairman, Chairman Wontumi – were also named in the secret recording.
