The President of the Republic, H.E Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is set to hold a meeting with the National House of Chiefs in Kumasi, Ashanti Region today, October 5, 2022.

The meeting which will also have various MMDCEs in attendance is about the illegal small-scale mining (galamsey) activities in the country.
