We counted 380 dolphins at Axim-Bewire and not 120 – CPP chair

The Chairperson and Leader of the Convention People’s Party (CPP), Nana Akosua Frimpomaa-Sarpong has challenged claims by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Fisheries Commission that its officials led the rescue and release of 38 dolphins that were washed ashore at Axim-Bewire last Sunday back into the sea.

According to her, she and some executive members of the CPP witnessed the incident at first hand and spearheaded the rescue of more than 40 dolphins “without the contribution of any expert.”

Addressing a press conference at East Legon in Accra Wednesday, April 7, 2021, Nana Frimpomaa-Sarpong also claimed that her team counted more than 380 dolphins washed ashore last Sunday, April 4, 2021 contrary to the 120 figure reported in the media.

According to her, the CPP team spent more than eight hours at the scene during which period “no expert” came to the scene until Monday morning when “we had already rescued some of the animals and had sent them to a much safer place.”

Demands

She therefore demanded that the EPA and the Fisheries Commission “tell the actual story” and recognise the role played by the CPP team in rescuing the dolphins.
