His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo -Addo has played down talks of frustration in his fight against against galamsey in Ghana.
Speaking on Sunrise FM in Koforidua,the president said his government has made huge commitment so far towards ending illegal mining (Galamsey).
“I do not see any frustration. Problems which are long-standing are not dealt with overnight. What you have to see is whether some things that have been put on the ground have been dealt with. Inevitably you will come across some resistance. Inevitably, there will be a vested interest.
“Some traditional authorities who are deeply involved in the Galamsey effort. They are there and you cannot wish them away. There will be political opponent.For me, all those are givens, I do not see them as elements of frustration. They are matters which are on the ground, and we have to take them into account.”
