The president together with the Minister of Lands and Natural resources has held a two days dialogue with stakeholders to discuss the best ways to curb the menace of illegal mining or Galamsey in the country.
A legal Practitioner, Bobby Benson has revealed that if we want to fight against the activities of illegal miners then, we should allow our laws to work rather than holding dialogues.
Bobby Benson made this statement on 'THE KEYPOINTS' program this morning when he was giving his opinion about the President's dialogue with stakeholders on the activities of Galamsey in the country.
According to him, he doesn't understand the agenda of that dialogue and its cost to the nation. As far as he was concerned, There was nothing new that they were going to tell Ghanaians because the laws that ban these activities are already there.
"I think the problem is that people who do not have the political clutch are stopped from engaging in this activity while those with political covering are allowed to go on.
If we want to fight this Galamsey, we don't need dialogues. We need to allow the laws to work because this dialogues will not change the laws." - he said
He added that those who are in charge of stopping this Galamsey should be given the political will to go out there and stop it
