Failure is not an option, we shall end galamsey – Lt. Gen Akwa

The Chief of Defence Staff (CDS), Lieutenant General Obed Akwa has indicated that, failure is not an option in the fight against illegal mining.

Speaking at a ceremony to launch “Operation Vanguard,”  – a National Anti-Galamsey Task Force established by the government to enforce the ban on illegal mining – on Monday morning at the Burma Camp in Accra, Lt Gen Akwa urged the team that is being deployed to fight galamsey to be tough and work with a nationalistic spirit.

“Indeed as I said in Bondase, failure is not an option, we shall put an end to all forms of illegal mining activities,” the CDS said.

The action forms part of the government’s unrelenting fight against galamsey that has destroyed water bodies and degraded the environment.The well-equipped security men are being deployed to the Ashanti, Western and Eastern regions to start patrolling mining areas.
