The former President  of Ghana John Dramani Mahama says if  the current President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo were in another jurisdiction, he would have simply resigned.

“If we were in some other jurisdiction, he would have resigned by now. By his word, he put his presidency on the line,” Mr Mahama observed in an exclusive interview with TV3‘s Alfred Ocansey on Monday, September 12, monitored by TodayGhanaMedia.com.


The former president noted that all the current illegal mining activities are being conducted on concessions owned by executives of the New Patriotic Party (NPP).

This he stresses is making it difficult for the president to fight illegal mining activities.

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo in 2017 put his presidency on the line in stating his resolve to fight the galamsey menace.

“I have said in Cabinet, and perhaps this is the first time I am making this public that I am prepared to put my presidency on the line on this matter,” he told some chiefs at a workshop in July of that year.

But Mr Mahama said the president lacks the political will to fight the canker.




“If you go to the districts they talk about community mining. Community mining is the NPP party executives and the DCEs who are doing the community mining.

“So, they are the ones doing what they are doing, so how can you expect him to fight galamsey when his own people are the ones who are doing it.”
