The Information Ministry will this morning update the nation on President Akufo-Addo’s new directive for military operations against mining in water bodies.
This forms part of measures to check illegal mining as well as protect the country’s natural resources such as land and water bodies.
President Akufo-Addo in his first term of office established Operation Vanguard, a Military task force charged with fighting galamsey.
The task force has since been in operation, however, it has been described as dormant by a section of the public over claims that their operations have not been effective in the country.
Nonetheless, government will this morning update the public on measures taken by the military task force against mining in water bodies.
