Akufo-Addo: Let's tackle "galamsey" without indulging in partisan politics.

 Traditional leaders and Ghanaians have been urged by President Akufo-Addo to forgo partisan politics in the fight against the devastating illegal mining operations in the nation, often known as "galamsey."

While the government, he claimed, was not opposed to mining in the nation, he added that it would not put up with detrimental mining practices like galamsey.

He believed that everyone in Ghana had a duty to contribute to preventing the environment from being destroyed, which is why the fight against galamsey needed to be free of political politics.

On Wednesday, October 5, 2022, in Kumasi, the Ashanti region, President Akufo-Addo spoke to the National House of Chiefs about the severity of the effects of illegal mining on the nation's environment and the need for everyone to help combat the threat.

All Metropolitan, Municipal, and District Chief Executives also attended the meeting (MMDCEs).

President Akufo-Addo requested the chiefs' assistance in the fight against galamsey, stating that the campaign "can only be successful if it is a really national battle."

"No one attempts to exploit [the fight against galamsey] for political purposes," he claims, referring to what happened during the most recent election.

The President stated, "The prosperity of our nation rests on all of us, all Ghanaians, working together to confront this existential threat to our future.

In order to stop the destruction of our lands and the contamination of our water sources, he stated, "I beg all of you to join hands with me in the fight against unlawful mining."
