Western region NPP demands speedy investigations on Charles Bissue


The Western Region Executives of the governing New Patriotic Party have appealed to investigative agencies to expedite action on the case involving the Secretary to the Inter Ministerial Committee on Illegal Mining (IMCIM) Mr. Charles Cromwell Nana Banyin Onuawanto Bissue.

Mr. Charles Bissue, who is also the Secretary of the NPP for the region, since being captured in the Anas-Tiger Eye PI documentary on Galamsey, has declared his willingness to avail himself for investigations to be conducted in the video.

He has subsequently resigned as Secretary to the Inter-Ministerial Committee on Illegal Mining to pave way for investigations.

A statement signed by NPP Western Region Chairman, Francis Ndede Siah, described Mr. Charles Bissue as a loyal and dedicated member of the Western Region and has executed his duties impeccably.

The Western Regional Executives according to the statement, claim they can vouch for his values, principles and capabilities; that when it comes to party activities and other responsibilities assigned him, Charles Bissue has been outstanding.

They continued, he is very loyal, committed and dedicated to every task assigned him, both at the National and the Regional level.

“As a Region, the Charles Bissiue we call a colleague, has discharged office as a Regional Secretary without any corrupt activities, thus, it comes to us as a surprise the claims being made against him by Anas Aremeyaw Anas and Tiger Eye PI.”

They believe the video is intended to undermine his integrity and reputation.

The regional executives have therefore called for the unedited footage of the documentary to be made available to the security agencies to enable them carry out the necessary investigations.

“[In as much as] we would not condone any acts of corruption, we as Regional executives and Ghanaians for that matter seek to see the matter finalised, and more importantly knowing who Bissue is, that’s why we have added our voice today”, the statement said.

They continued, “by this release, we are appealing to government, to expedite the process and if indeed Charles Bissue is guilty the laws of the land should take its course but if Anas is also buying time to delay the process, he should be pressed upon to respect the state agency by submitting himself to authority and made to follow due process”.

They expressed the believe, that Mr. Charles Bissue is innocent, but “we also want the rule of law to take its due course”.

“In conclusion, we are appealing to the president, H.E. Nana Addo Danquah Akufo Addo and the necessary state authorities to compel Anas to do what is expected of him and if not, we as a Region will advise ourselves”.
