A lot of concerns have been raised by Ghanaians about the government's decision of burning seized excavators at galamsey sites.
A former Deputy Managing Director of NIB, Alfred Thompson, has said that any seized excavator becomes the property of the government, and they can choose to do whatever they want with it which includes burning.
Alfred Thompson made this statement on the 'New Day' on TV3 this morning, 20th May 2021, when he gave his opinion on whether or not the government should burn the seized galamsey excavators.
According to Alfred Thompson, some people are there, and they don't want this fight against galamsey to go on, but they won't sit down for them to destroy our forest and river bodies with impunity.
"when government takes over the excavators, it becomes the property of the government. They can choose to do whatever they want with it.
We are destroying the excavators right there because we don't want anyone to come and ask for it again." - he said
He added that he is in support of the government's decision to burn the excavators on site.
