Given how pretentiously everyone has been handling it, a well-known preacher, Rev. Dr. Lawrence Tetteh, has called Ghana's campaign against unlawful small-scale mining (also known as galamsey) a comedy.

He asserts that there is no secret to the trade's participants or to how they are able to easily disobey the rules of the nation.

Rev. Dr. Lawrence Tetteh spoke in a brief excerpt from the Ghana Broadcasting Corporation's Breakfast Show on how he saw firsthand the depth of the environmental harm that Galamsey had brought about.

"I had the opportunity to travel to Tarkwa with my team as a sort of excursion and curiosity, and I was able to explore several glamorous locations." We moved forward to observe some in Obuasi, and he stated, "I believe it's a joke if we create talks that we are fighting Galamsey."

The revered Man of God went on to say that while national authorities are aware of the origins of galamsey and the reasons it has grown to be such a confident industry, they are choosing not to address it directly.

Galamsey's location is well known. How does the equipment get to Ghana while everyone is aware of the perpetrators? The equipment is not flown in from China directly. The tools don't fly directly from Japan. The equipment goes through a process before arriving from other locations.

"I believe it is past time for our country to stop focusing on such inconsequential issues and start walking the talk. "Galamsey has wrecked our country and is ruining our water resources," he continued.

The government of Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has been fighting a never-ending battle to eradicate galamsey from the nation, but it has faced numerous obstacles along the way.

Many water bodies are unhealthy as a result of the country's galamsey, which has even caused the obliteration of forests, rivers, and other water bodies.

The pipe water we drank today is not safe to consume for our health right now.
