At The Moment, Is Cocaine Doing More Damages To This Country than Mercury? - Twum Boafo Quizzes

The former Executive Secretary of Free Zones Board, Kojo Twum Boafo, has said that we should look at the restriction of the importation of mercury into Ghana if we are serious about ending galamsey. He quiz whether cocaine which cannot be imported in Ghana doing more damages to this country than Mercury?

Kojo Twum Boafo made this statement on 'Good Morning Ghana' on Metro TV this morning, 20th May 2021, when he lamented the effects of galamsey on our forest and river bodies.

According to him, controlling the importation of mercury could be a lot easier than tracking the movement of earthmoving equipment used in the operations of galamsey.

"People import mercury, and nobody says anything. We can't just import cocaine into this country, but is cocaine doing more damages to us than mercury at this time?

It is dumbfounding because many of us are living at Accra and Kumasi and have no idea of what is going on." - he said

He added that the government should be more proactive than just telling us that they are burning people's excavators.
