Prof. Albert Joseph Quarm, a former Manso Nkwanta MP, has refuted accusations that he participated in unlawful mining.

This comes after former Environment Minister, Prof Frimpong Boateng, submitted names of people in government who frustrated his effort to fight what is locally called ‘galamsey’. He captured this in his 2021 report on the work of the Inter-Ministerial Committee on Illegal Mining (IMCIM).

Mr Quarm’s name was on the list, where he was accused of abusing his role as a member of the Minerals Commission board to acquire concessions and sell them.

According to the report, the former MP sold the concessions to private individuals, including party members for GH¢200,000 per concession.

But in an interview on Friday, Prof Quarm said “I do not even have a single concession…I do not even have a concession in my name.”

“It is a fabrication,” he added, stating that he will have his lawyers write to Prof Frimpong-Boateng to retract and apologise.

“If he doesn’t do it, I will advise myself,” Prof Quarm said.
