The government has every intention and the resolve to see the fight against illegal mining to the desired end, President Nana Akufo-Addo has assured.

“Having begun it, we are not turning back until we make sure that our future is protected,” the President stressed during an address to the Ghanaian community in Belgium on Tuesday.

He was speaking ahead of the conduct of the meetings of the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals Advocates Group of Eminent Personalities.  

Ghana currently has a six-month ban on small-scale mining as part of efforts to end illegal mining and its degrading effects on the environment.
