President Akufo-Addo has reiterated his resolve to deal with illegal mining popularly referred to as galamsey.
The president who was speaking at a durbar at the Dormaahene’s Palace in the Brong Ahafo Region, said “The Ghana handed down to us by our forefathers is the same Ghana we must leave for the unborn generations. We must not allow Galamsey to destroy our country, no way.’’
The president also reassured the traditional rulers that he will deal with the issue of vigilante groups.
“If the rule of law is to work in Ghana then the law should be no respecter of persons neither should it be a respecter of one’s affiliations. If you as a Paramount Chief flouts the law, the law must deal with you.
“Whether you voted for me or not, whether you supported me or not, I am going to be the President for all. I am going to work with each and everyone of you. As President I need the support of all chiefs and traditional rulers across the country. This is the only way by which we can develop all parts of the country and bring prosperity to all.
