At a time where there has been an increased call for the government to do something about galamsey.
The Brong Ahafo Regional Youth of the New Patriotic Party, Abronye added his voice to the many others saying that Ghanaians shouldn’t put all their energy into political matters but rather concentrate on how to preserve our land from people who are harming it.
He indicated that the menace was becoming difficult to deal with due to the role some chiefs and politicians play in the illegal mining business.
He blamed the Chinese for further aggravating the problem by destroying our water bodies and cautioned authorities to deport such nationals when caught engaging in the galamsey business.
This he said must be done to save “our lands and rivers from degrading.”
“I will do what it takes to help fight illegal activities in Ghana and I will strike any Chinese who refuses to stop galamsey in Ghana”, he said.
