    #2020 SOTN: No one involved in galamsey will be SPARED – Akufo-Addo warns

    The President, Nana Akufo-Addo, has called on Ghanaians not to lose hope in the government on its fight against Galamsey menace insisting that his government has and will not give up on the fight against the illegal mining.

    According to the President, his government will continue the fight until the country’s water bodies are clean and the environment protected.

    Delivering the 2020 State of the Nation Address on the floor of Parliament on Thursday, the President said his government will deal with anyone found culpable in galamsey.

    He insisted that the Law enforcement agencies will deal with everyone no matter the political colour of the person.

    “No one involved in galamsey will be spared, no matter their position or political colours…,” he assured the mainly majority MPs in the house.

    The fight against illegal mining seemed to have hit a snag following reports of the missing of about 500 excavators.

    Chairman of the Inter-Ministerial Committee on Illegal Mining, Prof Frimpong Boateng and suspended first Vice Chairman of the NPP in the Central Region, Ekow Ewusi became the subject of discussion for their role in the galamsey fight.

    A report published by GhanaNewsPage.Com indicated that some executives of the NDC and the NPP had been arrested in the Eastern Region for their role in Galamsey.

    20 excavators were seized from the illegal miners but only 10 have been sent to the police station as part of that operation.

    Reacting to this, the President said the fight against galamsey is far from over insisting he is preparing to go the extra mile to ensure that the country win the fight.
