We see no show, one week after galamsey was declared National Emergency - Concerned Youth tells Nana

The Concerned Youth Of Ghana has written to the government of Ghana that they have not seen any action on galamsey one week after it was declared a National Emergency.

They said, Wednesday April 21, 2021 marks one (1) week after the National Consultative Dialogue on illegal mining popularly known as "Galamsey Dialogue".

The ministry of Land and Natural Resource led forum provided several memoranda, reports, proposals and unanimously agreed that Galamsey is a National Emergency.

A week-on, this declaration is yet to ignite the necessary flames, passion, urgency and public support it deserves to successfully prosecute the agenda of fighting the menace of illegal mining, a canker bedeviling our dear nation.

According to the Concerned Youth of Ghana, has government officials gone back to sleep or the main stream media is not doing enough.

Has it also been that Ghanaians are just fed up with the political gimmicks and gymnastics of a very serious, crucial and life threatening disaster, about to explored.

Where is the final report and Blueprint that will suggest a clearer pathway for the eradication of Galamsey.

It is quite obvious that we are losing every inch of our water bodies, forest reserve, human resource (health of the people) to illegal mining.

Something drastic and immediate must be done before we are engulf by imminent water pandemic and other hazards but unfortunately I cannot see that.

Mr Kofi Asante Mensah who is the convener of the Concerned Youth of Ghana said, we have laws begging (literally on it knees, pleading) to be implemented and enforced.

The people mandated to enforce these laws are themselves the violators, mutilators and perpetrators of this heinous crimes. 

It is high time the youth of Ghana parade at the nook and cranny of this country to demand accountability from these old men and women in authority, he finally added.
