What is the essence of the Minerals and Mining Act, 2006 Act 703 Mr. President? If you are Burning Excavators. Grandfather Have in mind most victims don’t own the excavator machine themselves they rent, Frankly is it deliberate that you want to collapse the excavator business?.
“Concerning the burning of excavators, if you look at the amendments that were made to the Minerals and Mining Act, it shows very clearly how when someone engages in illegal mining, the state goes through the law court to find a way of disposing of the excavators involved in the act of illegal mining. So if we want to burn them or the same state that has put the laws in place to ensure that there is a rule of law, turns around to say excavators should be burnt because we are having an issue with illegal mining, then what is the use of these laws?” we should follow due process and ensure that those who are doing the wrong thing will be dealt with in accordance with the laws that we have set for ourselves as a republic.
Ghana is now becoming a Banana republic under President Akuffo Addo who has been taughtened as the Ghana Apostle of Human Rights and respect rule of law Because he claims he is an astute lawyer. If the President and the cabinet cant think outside the box and apply the laws but prefer burning as the only alternative then I can’t think far and will agree with Mr. Ansong who once says that a weak brain can affect good decisions and application of laws if the head is weak.
