Akwasi Addai Odike, the founder of the United Progressive Party, has stormed the studios of Onua TV Studios to comment on the country's illegal mining activities, also known as "galamsey".
How did Odike acquire all the information that he provided on the public platform?
Odike told Onua Maakye host, Captain Smart about how several foreigners are allegedly taking advantage of the country's systems to benefit from the illegal mining activities, known as galamsey.
Are foreigners who take part in illegal mining activities not afraid of the country's laws? Don't foreigners know that they can face a minimum of 15 years imprisonment if they are found guilty?
Are foreigners aware that they can be charged with treason if they are found guilty of smuggling gold or diamond?
Well, Akwasi Addai Odike has attracted massive amounts of reactions from the length and breadth of the country for his comments.
Whilst some Ghanaians have hailed Odike for his comments, others simply described him as a patriotic citizen and a man of wisdom.
What do you make of Akwasi Addai Odike's comments? How can the fight against galamsey be won?
