"What is happening to our thinking capacity?"- Prof Gyampo blast government

Burning excavators and going to buy the same excavators for future land reclamation is politically senseless. This is according to Professor Ransford Gyampo, a Political Science lecturer in the University of Ghana.

Professor Gyapo is of the view that, although the fight against galamsey must not be romanticized, due to its pervasiveness, burning excavators is completely out of place.

"With the greatest of respect, burining excavators simply because the previously seized ones got back to their owners, does not make sense.

The Political Science lecturer argues that the excavators should rather be kept by government for reclamation purposes rather than burning them.

"Why burn excavators when you need the same excavators to go and reclaim the land that has been destroyed? Why do you burn excavators and later on use taxes payers money to go and procure new ones to reclaim destroyed lands? What is wrong with our thinking capacity?", He asked.

In an article sighted on his Facebook page on Thursday, Professor Gyapo urged the Minister of Lands and Natural Resources, Mr Abu Jinapor and his counterpart, Mr Dominic Ntiwul, the Minister of Defense not to be emotional in their approach in the fight against the activities of illegal miners, by burning excavators on site.
