Farmers are being pushed by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to join the fight against galamsey, or illegal mining.

President Akufo-Addo remarked that farmers and citizens must collaborate to battle the galamsey threat during his speech at the 38th National Best Farmer award.

According to the President, if farmers and the general people do not cooperate with the government to eradicate the galamsey threat, the unlawful activity would wreak havoc on the ecosystem.

If we don’t want to sabotage the legacy our forefathers left for us, it is our common responsibility as citizens and farmers to put an end to this environmental canker, he said.

In the view of the President, if “we are able to completely curb the menace of illegal mining”, the cocoa sector will thrive.

“Sustainability of the cocoa sector is consented on how effectively we are able to fight the devastating effect of illegal mining”, he said.
