The fight against illegal mining, alias Galamsay, is critical to Ghana’s survival as it destroys all the water bodies and forest reserves in the country.
He also questioned why some influential people in the country are setting unconcerned about the growing Galamsay menace in the country
”The way we are destroying our lands, putting down our cocoa trees and the behavior of some politicians, media, clergy, chiefs and other influential people involved in Galamsay business, l will not be surprised if years to come the country will have to import water
”Those above are using the youth of today for their selfish interest and the annoying thing is that those youth who are used by the big people are still poor
”What are we going to tell our great grandchildren some years to come, when they ask us about why we import water, why we are not the leading cocoa producing country as it was some years back and why can’t we get land to farm on or build?” He said.
Mr Appiah has therefore called for a regulation of community-based mining in the country.
”Galamsey is destroying our lands and our country so let’s wake up to say no to Galamsay.”
”Why can’t we encourage proper community mining which can be regulated and supervised? Let’s say no to Galamsay because the last time l saw river Pra and Birim l wept. Coka,l care” he stated.
