The National Communications Officer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Sammy Gyamfi has described as disappointing government’s justification for burning excavators in a bid to fight illegal mining popularly known as galamsey.
“…that when the excavators are confiscated they get stolen; really??? President Akufo-Addo should have even resigned because of this claim. Is it our fault that you don’t have trusted people in your government? Are you telling us that in your whole government there’s no one you can trust? Then Ghana is in trouble…” he said.
Sammy Gyamfi who was speaking in an interview on Neat FM said the fact that “Akufo-Addo doesn’t have people he trusts in his administration is no justification to violate the law by burning excavators and causing judgment debt in the end”
