A member of the Communication team of the National Democratic Congress, (NDC) in the Upper East region, Paul Danka has questioned the commitment of the government to fighting illegal mining (galamsey).

According to him, fighting galamsey is not the priority of the government considering the fact that the government failed to create a Ministry to help address the menace like it has done to fulfill some of the promises made during the campaign to the people of Ghana.

“The NPP is not committed to fighting galamsey because if they were, they would have established a Ministry specifically to address that challenge Ghanaians have to suffer at the hands of selfish individuals. The country does not have a national coach for railways neither does it have a national flight but the Aviation Ministry has been divided into four so if they were committed to fighting galamsey which according to research if not stopped, Ghana will be importing water by 2020, they would have created a Ministry for it to fight the menace.”

He indicated that with the involvement of corrupt Politicians, Chiefs, Police officers, Military men and the corrupt Ghanaian system, the fight against Galamsey will be a very herculean task to surmount.

“Do you want me to believe that there was no police patrol at Shan xii area there? So in what essence do you want to tell me you can fight galamsey when we were all made to understand that we have ended mining whiles, some Chinese come in with dangerous equipment to do their mining, where did heavy dangerous equipment come in from? Is it not from our ports? Politicians are involved, I am only praying to see the day Anass will release his latest investigation,” he said talking about the mining activities going on in the Talensi traditional area.

He believes galamsey could only be tackled the very day some the key stakeholders involved in destroying our water bodies will be arranged in court for prosecution.
