Akufo-Addo Has Failed, He Should Have Resigned - Mahama
Former President John Mahama says that if President Akufo Addo were in another jurisdiction, he would have simply resigned. If we were in some other jurisdiction, he would have resigned by now and by his word, he put his presidency on the line, Mr Mahama in an interview on Monday, September 12. The former president noted that
all the current illegal mining activities are also being conducted on concessions owned by executives of the New Patriotic Party (NPP). This he stresses is making it difficult for the president to fight illegal mining activities. President Akufo Addo in 2017 put his presidency on the line in stating his resolve to fight the galamsey menace. I
have said in Cabinet, and perhaps this is the first time I am making this public that I am well prepared to put my presidency on the line on this matter, he told some chiefs at a workshop in July of that year. But Mr Mahama said the president lacks the political will to fight the canker. If you go to the districts they talk about community mining.
Community mining is the NPP party executives and the DCEs who are doing the community mining. So, they are the ones doing what they are doing, and so how can you expect him to fight galamsey when his own people are the ones who are doing it.
