On the occasion of his 25th anniversary as the 16th occupant of the Golden Stool, Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II highlighted a pressing concern for Ghana: the urgent need to address the devastating impact of illegal mining, commonly known as Galamsey, on the environment.

In his address, the Asantehene emphasised that Ghana’s primary focus should be on restoring the environment, which has suffered greatly due to the destructive practices of galamsey.

He urged for concerted efforts to combat this menace, stressing that it is imperative for the present generation to safeguard the legacy left by their ancestors.

Calling for decisive action, the Asantehene underscored the importance of tackling Galamsey by all possible means.

He recognised that allowing such practices to continue unchecked would not only harm the environment but also compromise the future of Ghana and its people.

In his address the Asantehene said “Our top priority must be the reclamation of our environment from the ravages of Galamsey. We cannot be the generation that destroys the most gracious heritage bequeathed to us by our forefathers to satisfy the greed of a few miscreants. For whatever it takes we must defeat this scourge.”
