Accra, July 17, GNA –
Nii Addo Sasraku III, the Nungua Addogonno Mantse, has called on President Nana
Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to continue the good fight against illegal mining in the
country.

He said the President
should ensure that water bodies polluted and land degraded in the country were
restored within his tenure as his legacies.

Nii Sasraku made the
call in an interview with the Ghana News Agency (GNA) in Accra on Monday.

He said: “As a nation
we have danced round the menace for far too long and the outcome is what we are
witnessing today.”   

He recalled the days
when River Birim in the Eastern Region was potable while other rivers like
Tano, Pra and Ankobra were tourist attractions and pride of the country.

“Today, however, they
have become a sea of dark brown water harbouring dangerous chemicals.
Communities along the banks of these rivers have been deprived of water for
farming and domestic use,” he said.

Nii Sasraku expressed
regret that some high profile politicians were alleged to be involved in the
practice and appealed to traditional rulers and religious institutions to join
the crusade and eliminate the canker once and for all.

He urged Ghanaians to
support the Government in its efforts to further develop the nation.
