The natural resources of Ghana are being destroyed by the Chinese with the help of unpatriotic citizens and the government is complicit.
Galamsay, small scale mining or community mining have all become the playground for the Chinese continuous exploitation of the natural resources of the country.
Sadly, they are aided by unthínking citizenry and the government is behaving like a wīmp.
What is more pathetic is that, most of the Gold mined is smuggled outside the country.
The Government must order the termination of all mining activities immediately.
Over the years, there is a of activities the chinese have been involved in with devastating results to the nation yet with no consequences to them.
Surprisingly, the government and it’s security apparatus have not made this observation to come to the c0nclusion that Chïna is a security threât to the nation.
The presence of the Chïnese in Ghana has weakened the economy.
As wholesalers they have imported all kinds of household goods thereby preventing the development of local manufacturing sector.
Besides, they are even into retail business which is restricted to citizens.
The Chīnese came with their big Trawlers and started fishing with lights and destroyed the local fishing industry.
Note that, they suffered no consequences.
The Chinesë copied the textile designs including the Kente and produced cheap wax prints and destroyed our textile Industry.
Apparently, go to Akosombo and see how they have mon0polized the aquaculture production of the tilapia business displacing our local fisher folks.
Ghana has awarded construction projects to the Chinëse because they provide financing. They import into the country construction workers and materials like cement. Cement is manufactured in Ghana yet they are allowed to import cement thereby undermining the economy.
Also, go to the north and see how they have exploited the rosewood tree and destroyed the vegetation. At this time of southward movement of the Sahara do we have to deplete our forest cover?
Yet the chinese are allowed unimpeded. Sometimes Ghanaians wonder if the Chinëse ambassador is a member of the cabinet.
Unfortunately, Ghana has accorded the Chïnese so much latitude to it’s own disadvantage and destruction.
On the contrary, the Chinese have not recipr0cated but subject Ghanaíans in China to īnhumane treatment. It is time for Ghana to wake up and reássert her strategic interests and secūrity integrity.
