On Wednesday, April 21, 2021, myself together with the Municipal Chief Executive of Amenfi West, Personnel of Operation Vanguard and Ghana Immigration Service embarked on a field operation dubbed operation clean water bodies, an action against illegal mining.
We seized 16 excavators which were used to mine directly on the Tano River and handed over to the Minister for Lands and Natural Resources.
I pleaded with the chiefs of the communities to fully collaborate in fighting this menace.
Watch Video Below.
We assured the people of the communities our commitment to fighting illegal mining to regain the sanity of our water bodies, therefore, they should see themselves as partners so that collectively we can succeed.
