NASARA Coordinator for Manso Nkwanta District of the Ashanti Region, Mr Abdul Malik Anokye, has called on the government to dissolve Operation Vanguard.
In the view of Mr Anokye, Operation Vanguard has proven that they cannot be relied upon to fight galamsey, insisting that illegal mining activities were still pervasive in mining communities, and more especially in the Manso Nkwanta Constituency.
He said the government was wasting tax payers money in paying the Operation Vanguard team, stressing that it will be “better to dissolve it now!.”
According to him, he can state that the government has lost the fight against illegal mining, noting that the continued activities of galamseyers in the area were still polluting various water bodies and destroying forest reserves and fertile lands.
