Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, the president of Ghana has it on his heart to fulfil the will of God and not just people.
And according to the leader of Ghana, this resolve will be exhibited in his fight against galamsey.
The president has said that no matter the threats he may receive from aggrieved galamseyers about the 2020 polls, he will still remain focused and make sure the 'canker' becomes a thing of a past.
Speaking at Soabe in the Eastern Region on Wednesday he said, "I have been told some of the people engaged in illegal mining have threatened to vote against the NPP in 2020 if I crack the whip on the culprits."
Nana Addo revealed that the fight against galamsey is God’s will to him and he is determined to see it through no matter what.
"I am more concerned about fulfilling God’s purpose and devising measures to propel the nation’s development. That’s my focus and not election-related issues."
Things we must do to propel development are the things I am concerned about. Our forefathers left us the natural resources. If we can’t protect them, then we should leave them for future generations".
The president's fight against galamsey comes after a widespread campaign by some Ghanaians on social media.
The campaign was run under the hashtag, #StopGalamseyNow and focused on calling on the president to help save Ghana's water bodies that were reportedly suffering from galamsey activities.
