President Akufo-Addo has said he is determined to use all state resources to support the fight against galamsey which has destroyed several water bodies in the country.
The President said “we cannot and should not destroy our lands and water bodies and our environment in the search for gold and other minerals”.
He indicated that he has heard people engaged in galamsey saying they will not vote for him to enjoy a second term in government but the President mentioned that it is not certain that his name will be on the ballot paper in 2020.
“Well, the 2020 vote it’s not clear if Akufo-Addo’s name will be on the ballot in the first place and even if his name is on the ballot, this is not going to be the reason why I’ll stop, I’m going to continue.”
He indicated that their threats will not stop him for fighting for the growth of the country which is his pride.
