A former anti-galamsey taskforce member, Twum Ampofo-Agyekum, has recounted why he rejected numerous bribes offered him in the line of his duty.
According to him, he has been offered as high as GHS 700,000.00 and amounts not below GHS 500,000.00 just so he could compromise his role as a leader of the taskforce.
He explained some illegal miners who are Ghanaian nationals were always ready to pay the bribe in cash if only he was willing.
He made the disclosure on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen as he detailed circumstances that have derailed the government’s effort against the fight.
“There is a lot of money in these ‘galamsey’ areas and if you are greedy or money-conscious, you cannot succeed. They will bring the monies in ‘Ghana Must Go’ and as soon as you take the first money, that will be your end,” he cautioned.
