Chairman Wontumi has denied claims making rounds that he’s involved in the illegal mining menace.
According to the Ashanti Regional Chairman of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), none of his companies, including Akonta Mining Limited, are involved in any illegal venture.
This denial comes on the back of claims by the Ministry of Lands and Natural Resources that Akonta mining is engaged in illegal mining in the Tano Forest Reserve.
Speaking on his TV station, Wontumi TV, Mr. Boasiako said he was willing to submit himself to due process since he’s clean.
“I am appealing to them to use the law. They should do their investigations, and we should let the law work,” he said.
He also took pains to respond to widespread speculations that he’s deeply involved in the illegal mining menace.
“I want to tell the public that I am not into galamsey. I have a large scale company which Akonta mining is under… All the required documents I have, I will make all available,” he added.
