According to him, he is still convinced the deal to monitise Ghana’s mineral royalties and the proceeds used to develop other sectors of the economy is just to enrich a few people in government.

“Akufo-Addo and his Akyem ‘sakawa mafia’ want to sell our gold so to me he will forever be my ‘sakawa boy’,” he mocked during the NDC’s Town Hall meeting in Kumasi in the Ashanti region.

The NDC General Secretary maintained that the “Agyapa deal stinks”, thus a future NDC government will cancel it.

Meanwhile, the Agyapa agreement between the government and the Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) company was approved in line with the Minerals Income Investment Fund Act, 2018 (Act 978).

The approval will enable the country to use SPV, Agyapa Royalties Limited, to secure about $1 billion to finance large infrastructural projects.
