But Vladimir Antwi-Danso, director of the Legon Centre for International Affairs and Diplomacy, said the real issue, was the corruption among local officials that allowed the illegal mining to proliferate in the country's interior.
"This is to satisfy the political heat" hitting the sector right now, Antwi-Danso said.

For his part, the Chairman for the occasion, Dr Vladimir Antwi-Danso, was of the view that the Ghanaian electorate were inundated with unattainable promises, including the moon, simply because the politicians failed to ask the voter what they needed before they incorporated such promises into their "vuvuzela manifesto".
He commended the NCCE for the bold and brilliant decision to conduct a scientific research to know what the electorate needed from their governments when they were voted into power, and advised political parties to use theNCCE research findings to draw up their manifestos.
Dr Antwi-Danso who is also a Senior Research Fellow of the Legon Centre for International Affairs and Development (LECIAD), expressed shock thatpolitical parties would absent themselves from such an important national programme.
He described Ghana as a country with a Constitution but not practicing constitutionalism because various governments had failed woefully over the years to allow institutions created by the Constitution to flourish and work independently.
He said Ghanaian politicians had succeeded in politically colouring every aspect of Ghanaian life, especially to the extent that "even crime is gaining political colour".
Responding to Dr Antwi-Danso's call for politicians to address the needs of the people as captured in the research report, Mr T.N. Ward-Brew of the DPP said some of electorate, particularly those living in the so-called strongholds of some parties behaved like "zombies".

Vladimir Antwi-Danso Vladimir Antwi-DansoA senior research fellow of the Legon Center for International Affairs and Diplomacy (LECIAD) of the University of Ghana, Dr. Vladimir Antwi-Danso, has reiterated the need for Africa to craft her own democracy and not necessarily follow the European model.
According to him, democracy is a contractual type of system where the ruler and the ruled have a relationship that helps to foster transparency and good governance.
Dr Antwi-Danso made the observation at the first of three roundtable discussions organised by the Institute for Democratic Governance, themed "Ghana's Democratization Process So Far: The African Charter on Democracy, Elections and Governance (ACDEG) in Focus".
The roundtable discussion which was organised in collaboration with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration was a commemoration of the golden jubilee of the African Union.
The ACDEG enjoins AU member states to promote the universal values and principles of democracy and good governance including human rights and the right to development; as well as promote and strengthen good governance through the institutionalization of transparency, accountability and participation.
Speaking on the topic "Ghana's efforts at promoting good governance through the institutionalization of transparency", Dr Antwi-Danso noted that although Ghana is in the era of democracy, it did not equate to good governance.
He said, "We make the mistake of equating democracy to good governance. We often make the mistake that we are doing well in terms of good governance, human rights among others… we are not doing well on good governance and it is affecting institutionalism and constitutionalism."
Dr Antwi-Danso stated that in a country where crime has been given political colours, where the power of the Chief Justice and the Attorney General is vested in one person and parliament is not interested in its oversight powers on the executive, "these things don't go well for the consolidation of democracy."
He noted that the undertones of good governance were "hiccupping" resulting in indiscipline in the society.

Tema (Accra Gh.) 18 November 2004 - Professor Vladimir Antwi-Danso, Dean of Students at the University of Ghana Legon, on Wednesday suggested the need for the Government to impose a fee on countries that wish to recruit health professionals to work for them.
He explained that since Government could not stop the exodus of the health personnel, there was the need to find a favourable response to the problem.
Prof. Antwi-Danso, who was the chairman at the commissioning of a nursing training school in Tema, said a percentage of the fee could be used for the training of more medical doctors and nurses.
