Galamsey must end - Dr. Ndoum
Dr. Papa Kwesi Ndoum has bemoaned the devastating effect of Galamsey on the environment. Galamsey has wreaked havoc on water bodies in the country killing living organisms and forcing Ghana Water Company to treat water at a high cost. Farm lands and vegetation are being destroyed leading to short fall in food production and Dr. Ndoum is very much aware of the situation, “our lands are the source of food so if they are being destroyed, the cost of food will rise. We should all help in driving galamseyers away. When our lands, rivers and water are destroyed, our future is also destroyed” he noted.
He further stated that Galamsey is against the constitution of Ghana and must therefore be abolished immediately. Dr. Ndoum made this statement as a host on ATV’s Ghana Great and Strong show.
His statement comes in the wake of Minister of Lands and Natural Resource’s three-week ultimatum to illegal miners to quit or face the full rigors of the law.
