Sam Nartey George, the Member of Parliament (MP) for Ningo Prampram, has responded to reports that the Chinese national Aisha Huang who was arrested in Ghana had a card with the name Huang En on it.
2019 saw Huang’s removal from Ghana due to his involvement in illicit mining.
But after sneaking back into the nation, she was recently detained again for the same offense.
The “Galamsey queen” is accused of engaging in the sale and purchase of minerals without a permit and in mineral mining without a permit.
Along with Johng Li Hua, Huang Jei, and Huaid Hai Hun, she was taken into custody.
Her Ghanaian ID card is all over social media.
Following the charges, the Ningo Prampram MP highlighted in a tweet that the government is always eager to defend its efforts to digitalize the economy, including the Ghana card.
“When we raise questions about the efficiency of the systems that government trumpets, we are called names and described as sceptics.”
The opposition MP continued: “It is great to pursue digitalisation but a shoddy approach to tech deployment is a bigger threat than not having tech at all. God save this Republic.”
The Galamsey queen is registered as a non-resident of Ghana.
The card was issued on February 27, 2022, and it will expire two years later, on February 26, 2023.
