Bole MP blames Abu Jinapor over clashes between military, NPP executives over mining



The Member of Parliament for Bole-Bamboi, Yusif Sulemana is blaming Minister for Lands and Natural Resources Samuel Abu Jinapor over some clashes between the military and NPP Executives in the constitution over mining activities.

According to reports military officers assigned to protect the large-scale miners in the Bole district have brutalized the NPP Vice Chairman and Secretary for Bole for their alleged involvement in illegal mining operations.

Speaking to the media in parliament, the MP for the area accused the sector minister of failing to do proper stakeholder consultation before allocating lands to large-scale miners for prospecting, resulting in the clashes.

“The Ministry of Lands has apportioned the lands to over 7 miners asking them to go and prospect and the problem is that there were no proper stakeholder consultations.

“So the youth are there and they will see heavy equipment to take over what they are doing, that is where the clash is coming from. Interestingly, it is only the NPP executives who are given the juice places to do the galamsey work. That is what has been reflected.

“Today as I speak to you the Vice Chairman of the NPP in the Bole Bamboi constituency is hospitalized, and the secretary is also at the hospital because the military brutalized them last night. They brutalized them because we are told some Ministers have asked the military to protect the Chinese who are there doing whatever they call it,” the NDC MP stated.
