Gomoa-Pomadze (C/R), Aug.21, GNA – Gomoaba
Nana Apata Kofi V, Guantoahene of the Gomoa-Ajunmako Traditional Area, has
advised illegal miners to heed to Government’s call to stop the practice.

He said illegal mining activities had resulted
in land degradation and pollution of river bodies among other things, which
posed great threat to the lives of the millions of people who lived along those
rivers.

It is, therefore, important for illegal miners
to co-operate with the Government in its efforts at eradicating the menace from
the society once and for all.

Nana Apata Kofi, who is also the chief of
Gomoa-Pomadze, reminded illegal miners of the vital role water play in human
life and the need to safeguard rivers and other water bodies, which form the
main source of water.

He recalled the recent discoveries by some
renowned medical scientists that the chemical used in illegal mining activities
could cause kidney problems.

“Illegal miners should, therefore, be
extremely thankful to the Government for having initiated moves to stop such
dangerous activities once and for all,” he said.

He appealed to the sponsors of illegal mining
to support the Government with those monies for the speedy implementation of
the “One District One Factory” policy to provide employment for the miners.

Nana Apata Kofi advised members of the
operation vanguard assigned to protect the various mining zones in Eastern and
Western regions and other parts of the country to strive to discharge their
work with great caution.
