President Akufo-Addo has dissolved the Inter-ministerial Committee on Illegal Mining (IMCIM).

IMCIM was established by the New Patriotic Party government to clamp down on illegal small mining in the country also known as galamsey which was causing havoc to the country’s water resources and lands.

The Committee was headed by the former Minister for Science, Technology and Innovation Prof. Kwabena Frimpong Boateng.

At his last state of the nation address, the President  also called for a collective effort in the fight against galamsey.
