The musician said some government appointees are the ones behind the illegal mining yet government is not prosecuting them.

Speaking on the recent National Dialogue on Small Scale Mining, A Plus said the exercise is a waste of resources.

He said the president lacks commitment in bringing the menace to an end because he has failed to deal with people within his government and party who are engaged in the illegal trade.

“There is nobody who can go out there and do galamsey when his Excellency has said we should not unless you have a certain power."

“There is no Chinese who can walk into the country and enter the bush and start doing galamsey. Aisha Huang who was arrested and we repatriated her to her country was being protected by the same people who claim to be fighting galamsey", he said.

“The ordinary people are not into galamsey anymore, it is the same Akufo-Addo government officials who are into galamsey and so what is this hypocrisy going on?” he said.
