A presidential staffer and Secretary to the Inter-Ministerial Committee on Illegal Mining Charles Cromwell Bissue has been fingered as the foremost collaborator against efforts by President Akufo-Addo to fight the menace.

Commenting on the expose’ on Morning Starr Ranking Member of the Mines and Energy Committee of Parliament Adam Mutawakilu told host Francis Abban President Akufo-Addo must immediately fire those implicated and hand them over to the police for prosecution.
