The Nzema Kotoko Youth Association (NKYA) has issued a resolute condemnation against the scourge of illegal mining, commonly known as Galamsey, in Nzemaland. As custodians of our cherished land and guardians of future generations, NKYA stands firm in it’s commitment to protecting the natural heritage of our community.

Galamsey, with it’s wanton destruction and reckless exploitation of our resources, poses a grave threat to the ecological balance and socio-economic fabric of Nzemaland.

Our once-pristine water bodies, including the Ankobra River, Amanzule, Ebi, and Fia River, are being ravaged by the insatiable greed of illegal miners, leaving behind a trail of devastation and despair.

In a statement issued by the President of Nzema Kotoko Youth Association, Dr. Clement C. Blay, it was emphasized that the association is leading the engagement with stakeholders and media personalities to amplify the urgent need for action against Galamsey. Dr. C.C Blay, in his unwavering commitment to the cause, underscored the importance of collective responsibility and decisive action in tackling this pressing issue.

The time for passive observation has long passed,” remarked Dr. C.C Blay. “We, as a community, must unite in our resolve to confront Galamsey head-on and safeguard the future of Nzemaland for generations to come.”

NKYA calls upon all stakeholders, including government agencies, civil society organizations, and community leaders, to join hands in the fight against Galamsey. Together, we must advocate for stricter enforcement of regulations, promote sustainable mining practices, and empower local communities to resist the allure of illegal mining.

Furthermore, NKYA urges the media to play a pivotal role in raising awareness about the detrimental effects of Galamsey and fostering a culture of environmental consciousness among the populace.

In conclusion, NKYA reaffirms it’s unwavering commitment to preserving the natural beauty and ecological integrity of Nzemaland. Through concerted efforts and collective action, we can overcome the scourge of Galamsey and ensure a brighter, more sustainable future for our beloved community.
