Dormaahene declares support for “FixTheCountry” campaign, charges leaders to work towards it
He has appealed to chiefs to stop releasing lands for illegal mining activities since Galamsey cannot be done in a community without the knowledge of chiefs.
The Omanhene of the Dormaa Traditional Area Osagyefo Oseadeeyo Agyemang Badu II has expressed that, the agitation of the masses to fix the country is a call in the right direction.
He is calling on leaders of the country including Pastors, traditional rulers, stakeholders to support the government to fix the country as required by some citizens.
According to him, the movement is geared towards making Ghana great again and also to improve the living conditions of Ghanaians.
He said the “Fix the country campaign” is not only targeting the government, but traditional leaders, the clergy and politicians because the youth feel that leaders in the country, in general, have disappointed them.
He further described the campaign as appropriate and called on the government to accept the criticisms by working to meet the demands of the youth, adding that constructive criticism only helps to put pressure on the government to work hard to improve the wellbeing of the people.
Osagyefo Agyemang Badu II made the call at his 22nd anniversary on the throne which took place at Dormaa on Monday, June 7, 2021.
He appealed to chiefs to stop releasing lands for illegal mining activities since Galamsey cannot be done in a community without the knowledge of chiefs. He threatened to identify chiefs who condone illegal mining in their communities for their destoolment.
He said he was adequately prepared and committed to fighting and bringing to an end the Galamsey menace, which had caused considerable and widespread damage to farmlands, forest reserves and rivers in the area, by using the powers vested in him as the Paramount chief without fear or favour.
He however called on Ghanaians to venture into palm tree farming since it has become lucrative.
