Following the mining scandal, Ghana’s president fires a junior finance minister.

A recent report said that investors in small-scale mines in the West African country had paid the minister bribes.

The presidency of Ghana said on Monday that President Nana Akufo-Addo fired Charles Adu Boahen, who was the minister of state for finance.

In a statement, the president said he took the action after hearing about the accusations made against Adu Boahen in an article about small-scale gold mining.

It also said that Akufo-Addo had sent the case to the special prosecutor so that more research could be done on it.

Reuters asked Adu Boahen for a comment, but he didn’t answer right away.

Ghana is Africa’s second-largest gold producer, and about one-third of the country’s gold comes from small-scale mining.

In a recent report, the controversial journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas said that Boahen had taken money from investors in small-scale mines to let them work without getting in the way.

Members of Ghana’s parliament are also calling for Ghana’s finance minister, Ken Ofori-Atta, to be fired. They accuse him of corruption and bad economic management at a time when the country is going through its worst economic crisis in a generation.

On November 6, hundreds of protesters marched through Accra, the capital city, calling for President Nana Akufo-Addo to step down because of the country’s economic crisis, which has caused fuel and food prices to rise to all-time highs.
