The Member of Parliament representing the South Dayi constituency in the Volta Region, Rockson-Nelson Etse Kwami Dafeamekpor has revealed that some members of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) were sent to China for training in mining.

Speaking in an interview with Metro TV on Tuesday, October 11, 2022, Honorable Rockson indicated that the NPP government is not committed in fighting galamsay. 

According to him, if you check the budget of 2018/2019, government spent millions of cedis on a program on small scale mining and sent party people to China to train on small scale mining with a sanitized money.

He indicated that after returning from China they were deployed to various galamsay sites to work thus contributing to the destruction of water bodies and forest reserves.

“If you check the budget of 2018/2019, we spent millions of cedis on a program on small scale mining and sent party people to China to train on small scale mining in a sanitized money and after returning, they were deployed.

Galamsey machines are now accessing feeder roads; residential homes are being destroyed. Galamsey is now listed as one of our national security issues”, he said.
