On Sunday, 15th August 2021, we gathered information concerning illegal mining operations on the Ankobra River, so I led a team of task force to successfully demolish all the equipment being used i.e. change fans, canoes, etc.
I want to state unequivocally that we will continue to fight the illegal mining activities in the Western Region and nothing will stop us.
It is a collective agenda therefore let us not relent on giving out information on those activities to the immediate district or municipal assembly.
We assure the good people of Western Region that we are committed as a government to fighting this menace and to protect our water bodies.
I thank Hon. Frank Okpenyen, Nzema East DCE for his timely response and support which is very laudable.
