Lands and Natural Resources Minister, John Peter Amewu, says former President Mahama is being dishonest in his attack on government’s handling of the ban on illegal small-scale mining.
Mr. Mahama at the National Democratic Congress’ Unity walk-in Kumasi on Saturday, April 28 criticized the government for using “Shoot-to-kill” approach in the fight against Galamsey.
However, Mr. Amewu in a rebuttal at the eighth Ghana Entrepreneur and Corporate Executive Awards over the weekend expressed disappointment in the former leader’s inability to halt Galamsey during his tenure as President.
“I respect that man, but for today, I’m much disappointed in what he said in Kumasi. He should provide a single-page document on small-scale mining in the country; he has failed Ghanaians and that was why Ghanaians rejected him as president. He cannot use Galamsey propaganda this time round to convince the people and think he can come back to Power”.
Mr. Amewu called on Miners not to buy into the former President ’s propaganda antics because he has nothing good to offer them.
