A former Minister of Communications, Dr Edward Omane Boamah, has called on President Akufo-Addo to establish a full-scale probe into the mysterious disappearance of US$30 million worth of cocaine at the Tema Port.

To him, the issue demands a full enquiry by a commission and "not a committee", in order to unravel the details of some missing cocaine.

The Finder newspaper reported in its Friday April 28 issue that 10 bags of suspected cocaine, each weighing 50kg (500kg in all) hidden in a consignment of rice with an estimated street value of about $30million has vanished from the Tema Port under mysterious circumstances.

The former Communications Minister condemned state actors involved for "layered irresponsibility", adding that the United Nations (UN) had hinted the Government of Ghana about the haul.

Contributing to the debate on Metro TV’s Good Morning Ghana on Friday, 28th April, 2017, Dr Boamah emphasised the deleterious effects of hard drugs on individuals, society, the country, and the world as a whole.

He further stressed the influence drug barons could have on Mr Akufo-Addo’s government if he fails to set the right example with the cocaine-vanishing incident.

He was of the view that the Chairman of the Commission must be at par with a Supreme Court or Appeal's Court judge.
