Host of Maakye on Onua TV/FM, Blessed Godsbrain Smart has tasked the Okyenhene, Osagyefo Amoatia Ofori Panin to stop the galamsey behind his palace.
Captain Smart says in order to realise Ghana’s dreams of increasing her tonnes of cocoa production, the Okyenhene has to stop the felling of cocoa trees few kilometres behind his palace.
His comments stem from a statement from the Okyenhene describing critics of the Akufo-Addo government as witches and wizards, uncivilised and ill-nurtured whilst galamsey is ongoing at his backyard.
In a video taken by Onua TV/FM’s Maakye team at Kyebi, headquarters of the Akyem Abuakwa Traditional Council where the Ofori Panin stool is, illegal mining activities known as galamsey was seriously ongoing.
On the morning show Friday, October 27, 2022, Captain Smart said the only thing he wants the Okyenhene to do is to stop the galamsey behind his palace.
“Okyenhene, we were at Kyebi and just few metres away from the palace, there was galamsey ongoing. Nana, please stop the galamsey at your backyard,” he charged.
