My attention has been drawn to a 37-page report purported to have been written by the former Minister for Science and Technology, Professor Kwabena Frimpong Boateng who was Chairman of the Inter-ministerial Committee on Illegal Mining (ICIM).


The report said to have been submitted to the Chief of Staff (CoS) cites me as an example of persons supporting or engaging in illegal mining.


“There are appointees in the Jubilee House that are doing or supporting illegal mining or interfering with the fight against the menace. Examples are Lord Commey, Charles Nii Teiko, and Frank Asiedu Bekoe (Protozoa),"


For purposes of setting the records straight, I wish to state without a shred of doubt that I have never engaged in or supported illegal mining as contained in the said report.


There is no point prior, during and after the appointment of the said Minister have called, texted or even assigned anyone to seek favour in respect of engaging in illegal mining to warrant his unsubstantiated allegations against me.


I, therefore, challenge him to prove beyond reasonable doubt claims I was either promoting or engaging in illegal mining or that I would use available legal means to protect my hard-won reputation.


Until proven otherwise, I would urge all to treat the claims of Professor Kwabena Frimpong Boateng with the contempt they deserve.
