The Minister for Sanitation and Water Resources, Cecilia Dapaah, says Ghana cannot afford to allow greed and selfishness to drive and destroy the country’s water bodies and green vegetation.
She noted that if bold decisions are not taken to tackle the menace of galamsey immediately, Ghana would face huge challenges with water generation in the next 10 years.
‘’It will take us years to clean our water bodies. If we do not take care, in the next 10 to 15 years, there will be no water. People think it’s an exaggeration. But, the harm being done to our water bodies is not a joke.’’
“We as adults in the pursuit of selfishness, should not be allowed to do this to our beautiful country. We have to leave a good legacy for generations unborn. Whoever is muddying our water bodies must stop. Our President will use all means available and legal to ensure that this stops. We must have a good future for this nation,” Cecilia Dapaah told Kwaku Dawuro on ‘Anopa Nkomo’ on Accra-based Kingdom FM 107.7
Ms Dapaah, therefore, appealed to the youth to support the President’s drive to move the nation forward, assuring that government had drawn up long-term programmes to improve the lives of Ghanaians through the ‘Planting for Food and Jobs’ and the ‘One district, one factory initiatives’.
She added, “Ghanaians must be assured that change has come, we want to increase employment for Ghanaian professionals through skilled transfer, research and development.”
