Dr. Bawumia To Small-Scale Miners: “My Objective Is To Turn You Into Multimillionaires And Millionaires.”

Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, the flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), has pledged, should he win the upcoming general elections on December 7, 2024, to make significant improvements to the mining industry that will benefit Ghanaians more.

Dr. Bawumia claims that small-scale Ghanaian miners will receive the majority of mining concessions in Ghana during his administration.

According to myjoyonline.com, the vice president stated that the primary goal of his administration’s mining policy will be to greatly enrich Ghanaian small-scale miners.

“The small-scale miners will receive the mining concessions from us. Making numerous small-scale miners into multimillionaires and millionaires is my main goal. On the final day of his campaign visit to the Western Region, he is said to have remarked, “I want to support our small-scale miners,” in front of youth groups and small-scale miners at Tarkwa.

The NPP flagbearer declared that his government will take steps to regularize small-scale miners’ operations and provide them with the necessary support, as opposed to pursuing them and seizing their equipment.

“We’ll grant them a license and codify the small-scale mining regime. “Everyone will use their Ghanaian card to register with the Small-Scale Miners Association. We will also increase the representation of the EPA and the Minerals Commission and ensure that the districts without representatives receive some representation,” the speaker stated.

Additionally, he claimed that chiefs would be crucial in granting mining permits to miners operating within their communities.

Additionally, he declared that the nation’s mining laws would be changed during his presidency to permit the decentralization of significant mining organizations like the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Minerals Commission.
