NDC’s Communications Director, Sammy Gyamfi has said President Akufo Addo is becoming a lawless person for burning the expensive excavators used in the small-scale mining sector.
According to him, the destruction of the equipment being used to pollute water bodies and destroy forest reserves will not cease till the criminal acts are halted. He has therefore challenged those who think otherwise to go to the court of law.
Don’t forget that there have been public concerns on the destruction of the equipment, especially excavators with some including almighty Twene Jonas suggesting that they should rather be seized.
Some suggested that many politicians were the ones behind illegal mining and hence the fight may fail again.
@NAkufoAddo The prosecution and 15-25 year imprisonment of illegal miners as provided under our Minerals and Mining Act, is a more deterrent and effective way of fighting the “galamsey” menace than the burning of Excavators. #StopTheLawlessness
