Ghana is at a very high risk of losing lives and causing menace to our society due to illegal mining activities popularly known as "galamsey".
It is sad to observe the recent devastating and inhumane attitude of these miners towards our water bodies, land and vegetation without reflecting on what the future holds for all of us as far as this canker is concerned.
Captain Smart, a media personality on Onua tv noted that the hospital diagnose atleast 15 cases a day with cancer related issues.
Report shows that these people diagnosed are mostly from galamsey-prone areas.
Call it a plea for mercy, a cry for justice or a fight against evil, the Presidency of the Republic, in whom, all powers of the state has been vested in, coupled with his pledged allegiance to this country and the citizens entrusted in his care,must rise to the occasion as a chief marshal in this fight.
Religious leaders, civil society organisations, traditional leaders, the media and the citizens must hasten to add their voice to safeguard our lives in the near future.
The generation to inherit todays work must not feel dissapointed .Ghana must grow from its mess .
