The issues pertaining to galamsey keeps dominating the headlines. The second term of President Akufo-Addo is bent on rooting out illegal mining and preserving the river bodies of the country. Many have argued that until the government exposes its own officials involved in the practice, the fight galamsey will be hard to stop.
George Ayisi, an NPP Communications Officer and Communications Director for NADMO, today, Monday, May 24, 2021 told Serwaa Amihere on ‘GHToday’ that he fully supports the burning of excavators. According to him previous initiatives have all failed so it was best to go in the hard way. Serwaa Amihere was however surprised because she felt NADMO is one institution that needs excavators for its work.
“I fully support the burning. I support it 100%. Yes, NADMO needs the excavators but here is the case that this is the only way to stop galamsey. Initially we failed because we did not take this initiative. We don’t want any issues. We want to stop galamsey so I support the burning of the excavators” George Ayisi said.
