NDC’s Member of Parliament for Sagnarigu constituency, Alhaji A.B.A Fuseini has made some serious allegation of how a former Minister of State at the Office of the President, Rockson Bukari was forced to vacate his office after an alleged bribery exposé.

A visibly incensed Alhaji A.B.A Fuseini, vented his spleen on the Nana Addo-led government in an interview on NEAT FM’s morning show ‘Ghana Montie’, accusing the current administration of using Northerners in his administration as ‘scapegoats’ to protect others.

He described as "crass" and illogical, the continued presence in office of the embattled former Executive-Secretary Inter-Ministerial Committee on Illegal Mining (IMCIM), Charles Bissue after his role in a damaging galamsey fraud case.

“This government thinks we [Ghanaians] are fools to believe all the trash they are telling us . . .That man [Charles Bissue] is still in office, they didn't ask him to go. What he did is worse than Rockson Bukari . . . some other person they will carry him out of office because he is from the northern part of the country,” he alleged.

Rockson Bukari’s exposé

Rockson Bukari was caught on tape trying to prevent the Starr FM Upper East region correspondent from publishing a damning story against a Chinese mining company when he was the Upper East regional minister.

Mr. Bukari allegedly tried bribing the journalist with GH¢5,000 cash in a brown envelope and a brand new motorbike to stop the story from going public.

The regional minister was reassigned to the presidency when the story first made waves in 2018, but after it resurfaced Mr Bukari who failed to convince Ghanaians that he was trying to make peace and not bribe the journalist has resigned. 

Mr Charles Bisiw exposé

Award winning investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas presented visuals of the role played by Secretary to the Inter-ministerial Committee on Illegal Mining (IMCIM), Charles Cromwell Bissue in his undercover piece, ‘Galamsey Fraud’.

Mr. Bissue was among several others caught on camera by the Tiger Eye PI team stabbing government’s fight against illegal mining popularly known as ‘Galamsey’ in the back.

He has denied any wrongdoing and emphatically stated that “I have taken notice of the contents of the latest documentary by Tiger Eye P.I., titled ‘Galamsey Fraud.’ I would like to state, at the very outset, that I am innocent of the allegations leveled against me in the documentary, as I was not and have not been engaged in any acts of corruption, criminality or misconduct.”

But Anas in a post on Facebook, insist that the Presidential Staffer indeed abused his office as there are hard facts against him.

According to the undercover journalist, Mr. Bissue used his office to engage in bribery and corruption to enrich himself.

Despite calls on Mr. Bissue to resign, he is reportedly still at post.
