Dormaa Ahenkro (B/A),
Aug. 11, GNA – Mr Drissa Ouattara, the Dormaa Municipal Chief Executive, has
vowed to fight illegal mining or galamsey activities in the Municipality.

He said he was
determined to support the efforts and resolve shown by traditional rulers,
particularly Osagyefo Oseadeyo Agyemang Badu II, the Paramount Chief of Dormaa
Traditional Area in the fight against illegal mining and wanton destruction of
forest resources in the area.

Mr Ouattara said this
at Abanpedease in Dormaa Ahenkro when he paid a courtesy call on Osagyefo
OseadeyoAgyemang Badu II, the Paramount Chief of Dormaa Traditional Area to
formally introduce himself to the chief following his appointment as the Dormaa
Municipal Chief Executive.

He said a taskforce
would be established to monitor the activities of illegal chain saw operators
who carry out operations at night at Aboabo, Amasu and Pampaso.

The MCE pledged to
complete work on the Agyemang Badu School and create access roads in the
community.

Responding to a
question on increase in custom duty which has led a sizable number of trucks
being grounded at the Gonokrom– Cote d’ Ivoire border, he said the owners of
the goods were being made to “pay realistic prices, but this is misconstrued to
mean there was an increase on custom duty”.

He said these
directives were instructions which emanated from higher authorities in Accra.

Mr Ouattara pledged to
seek the interest of Dormaa-Ahenkro and thanked the chief for supporting his
nomination for the position of a Municipal Chief Executive.
