Mrs. Cecelia Abena Dapaah, the Minister of Sanitation and Water Resources, has appealed to the Central Regional Minister for help in saving the area’s water bodies.

She said that a baseline report on the state of water sources and the impact of illicit mining operations, also known as “galamsey,” was needed.

Mrs. Dapaah made the remarks when she paid a visit to Mrs. Justina Marigold Assan, the Central Regional Minister, to discuss steps to address the contamination of water bodies in the district, especially the River Prah.

Mr. Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, Minister of Information, Mr. Samuel Abu Gyinapor, Minister of Natural Resources, and Dr. Clifford Abdullah Brimah, Chief Director, accompanied her.

Mrs. Dapaah said the contamination of water sources by nefarious activities of illegal miners had to be curtailed with maximum effort.

“We have to work to curtail the evil acts of galamsey because everything will choke up if we fail to and so. We need all stakeholders to come together to fight it,” she added.

Mrs. Assan assured the delegation of her unwavering commitment to the protection of water sources in order to represent the Ghanaian people and fulfill the President’s vision of ending galamsey.
