The war against illegal mining, also known as galamsey, according to President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, can be successful if it is not politicized.

According to him, the battle against the threat cannot be won until it is approached from a nationalistic perspective.

The President lamented the failure of all attempts to combat galamsey during a meeting with the National House of Chiefs.

“It is obvious that, if we are to win the fight, you and l have to take the lead to collaborate closely to do so. That is why I am here today. After our meeting, I will also be meeting with the other half of the local government [institutions]-the Metropolitan, Municipal, and District Chief Executives in the ninety metropolitan, municipal, and district areas across the country, where mining activities take place, to seek their active collaboration.”

He also urged the chiefs to assist the government in eradicating the threat.

In the closed-door portion of our meeting, I will make numerous requests of you, but one of the most important ones is to ask for your help in removing partisan political interests from the effort to combat galamsey.

It can only be successful if it is a true national conflict that no one tries to manipulate for political benefit, as we witnessed in the previous election.
