NPP Western Region Wants Investigations On Charles Bissue Fast-Tracked

The Western Region Executives of the ruling 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 avowed willingness to avail himself for investigations to be conducted in the video.

A statement signed by NPP Western Region Chairman, Francis Ndede Siah, said Mr. Charles Bissue is 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 Bissue we call a colleague has discharged office as a Regional Secretary without any corrupt activities, thus, it comes to the claims being made against him by Anas Aremeyaw Anas and Tiger Eye PI.

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

They have through the statement, also called for the unedited footage of the documentary to be made available to the security agencies to enable them to 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 it 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 belief, that Mr. Charles Bissue is innocent, but "we also want the rule of law to take its due cause".

"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".

29th March 2019
On behalf of the Western Regional Executives of the ruling NPP, we wish to state unequivocally that, Mr. Charles Cromwell Nana Banyin Onuawanto Bissue (Regional Secretary) is a loyal and dedicated member of the Western Region and has executed his duties impeccably.

We as Regional Executives can vouch for his values, principles, and capabilities; that when it comes to Party activities, Charles Bissue is outstanding. 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 Bissue we call a colleague has discharged office as a Regional Secretary without any corrupt activities, thus, it came as a surprise when one journalist(ANAS), sought to undermine his integrity with a video that went viral.

Therefore, we as Regional Executives, move to add our voice to the numerous calls by all well-meaning Ghanaians that Mr. Anas Aremeyaw Anas should produce the unedited footage for the security agencies to 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.

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 it course but if Anas is also buying time to delay the process, he should be impressed upon to respect the state agency by submitting himself to authority and made to follow due process.

We are of a firm belief, that, Charles Bissue is innocent, but we also want the rule of law to take its due cause.

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.
