Addressing the District Coordinating Director, the women said while the people of Ada do not have gold, they consider the salt as their gold.

They said they support the fight against galamsey in all forms especially Atsiakpo which is destroying their livelihoods.

They want the district assembly to stop the partitioning of the lagoon into smaller pans and the destruction of the lagoon base of rock-salt in order to restore the lagoon to its natural state and make it open and accessible to all.

The District Coordinating Director expressed gratitude for their peaceful undertaking and encouraged them to rewrite a petition to be sent to the new government.

He promised to discuss their plight with the assembly for a firm decision on the Lagoon.
