I’m worried after all the investment we can’t win war against galamsey – Akufo-Addo

October 6, 2022

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has expressed worry over the failure of government to win the war against galamsey.

The President whiles addressing members of the National House of Chiefs in Kumasi on Wednesday, October 5, 2022, said it’s a great worry to him that regardless of the investment in fighting illegal mining, it’s still a major challenge in the country.

He says going forward, he believes that government will have to collaborate with the Traditional leaders in the fight against the menace that is destroying Ghana’s water bodies and forest reserves.

The President reminded the National House of Chiefs that he is not against mining but rather, he is against mining that will destroy the water bodies and forest reserves and called on the Traditional leaders to contribute their quota at ensuring that Ghana wins the fight against illegal mining.
