I Will Not Burn Your Excavators Under My Presidency – Bawumia To Galamseyers

Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, the NPP candidate for governor in 2024, has announced a dramatic change in the way the government handles illicit mining operations, or galamsey.

On Saturday, March 30, Dr. Bawumia declared to a crowd of fervent NPP supporters during a health walk in Kwahu, Eastern Region, that excavators that had been seized would no longer be burned under his administration.

He acknowledged the need for a fresh approach to properly combat the canker, even as he praised the NPP’s work over the previous seven years in fighting galamsey.

In the event that Dr. Bawumia was elected, she promised to put into effect a revised strategy that would reduce illicit mining while protecting confiscated machinery, especially excavators.

“We are going to help small-scale miners; we will introduce a mineral development bank to get money for them. There is a new regime for small-scale miners, we will not burn your seized excavators,” he said.

He further emphasized that the present NPP administration, led by President Akufo-Addo, had outperformed the former Mahama administration in every area of the economy.

“Jobs, we have performed better, agricultural growth, we have performed better, Zongo development, we have performed better, roads, we have performed better, airports, we have performed better, interchanges, we have performed better,” he noted.
