The District Chief Executive (DCE) for Amansie West in the Ashanti Regional, William Asare Bediako has accused the Member of Parliament (MP) of the area, Hon. Joseph Albert Quarm of scheming to oust him from office.

According to the DCE, the MP has been making unfounded allegations against him which sought to run him down in the eyes of President Akufo-Addo and other members of the public.

Hon. William Asare Bediako alleged on Nhyira FM that the lawmaker in many attempts has incited the presidency against him by accusing him of engaging in illegal mining activities in the area despite a ban.

Hon. William Asare Bediako told host of Nhyira FM morning show host Aduanaba Kofi Asante Ennin he has never engaged in illegal mining as being alleged by Hon. Joseph Albert Quarm.

The DCE explains as chairman of the District Security Committee (DISC) he has led many operations that has led to arrest several illegal miners in the district.

“I don’t know the basis of those allegations against me. ….I dare anyone including Hon. Albert Quarm to substantiate those allegations against me”, the DCE fumed.

Hon. William Asare Bediako therefore urged the public to treat allegations made against by the lawmaker in the area with contempt it deserves.

Hon. Joseph Albert Quarm last month accused the District Chief Executive (DCE) for area, William Asare Bediako of supervising over illegal mining activities in the district.

According to the anti-illegal mining crusader, politicians across the divide in the area are still engaging in illegal mining despite a ban on these activities by the government.

“It is true and I can confirm that some people are still doing it in places like Kaniago, Totomkrom, Abore and many areas”, Hon. Joseph Albert Quarm revealed on Kumasi-based Fox FM.

The DCE however denies the claims insisting it is a diabolic move by the MP and his cohorts to have him fired.
