According to him, combining the two will be too much of a task to undertake at a go since those involved in corruption are also involved in galamsey.

Security analyst Dr Kwesi Aning is advising President Nana Akufo-Addo not to combine the fight against corruption with the ongoing clampdown on illegal mining (galamsey).

According to him, combining the two will be too much of a task to undertake at a go since those involved in corruption are also involved in galamsey.

Speaking on Starr Chat Thursday with media personality Bola Ray on Starr FM, Mr Aning said the fight against galamsey will expose those involved in corruption.

“No government in this country can fight corruption well. I’ve advised President Akufo Addo not to add the corruption fight right now to the galamsey fight. Because the people who are involved in galamsey are also involved in corruption and it will just be too much of a big bite for the President, he said.

He added: “So let’s fight the galamsey fight which is going fairly well [around 52%] and say how do we identify those who are behind the galamsey. Because the galamsey fight will expose some of the most corrupt people.

“In all the galamsey fight, no important Ghanaian has been arrested. But there are Ghanaians involved… important ones.

“How do you import equipment from China or Ukraine or Russia and you pass them through the ports if some important person is not part of it.? So, there are a few important tough questions we need to ask which we’re not asking yet.

“So the corruption fight is important but I think we shouldn’t combine it with galamsey fight.”
