“I Did Not Expect Him To Stand Before The Chief Justice And Say That” – Rockson Dafeamekor

President Akufo-Addo yesterday gave a final ruling to a question that has been bothering most Ghanaians. He made it clear that he swore an oath and will make sure that the oath is kept. According to Akufo-Addo he will make sure he roots out galamsey. He went on to justify the burning of excavators found with 100 meters of water body. He charged those who disagree to go to court.

However, this comment has received mixed reviews especially those who felt the excavators could have found a better purpose. Today, Thursday, May 27, 2021, Rockson Dafeamekor on ‘GHToday’ told Serwaa Amihere that he was disappointed by the president’s speech. He noted that someone lower than the president should have said that. He queried why galamsey offenders are not prosecuted and rather excavators are being burnt.

“I didn’t expect the President to say that. He shouldn’t have said that. What if they take him on? What if they seek legal counsel and then they win in court? Wouldn’t it lead to judgement debts? Why is the Attorney General not prosecuting those involved? You can’t stand before the Chief Justice and say that. It’s unacceptable.

I expected someone else to say that. Certainly not the president. We have a problem. You don’t punish illegality with illegality” the MP for South Dayi said.
