Who Are You Coming To Free? How Many People Have Been Jailed For Galamsey? Mahama Quizzed



A Deputy Lands and Natural Resources Minister, Benito Owusu-Bio has slammed former president John Dramani Mahama for promising to free jailed illegal miners if he wins the December polls.

John Mahama, at a rally in the Mpohor Constituency in the Western Region vowed to grant amnesty to jailed illegal miners under the Akufo-Addo led administration.

In reaction, Mr. Owusu called on the National Democratic Congress (NDC) flagbearer to come out and make public the number of people that have been jailed because of illegal mining.

“It is an embarrassment because of the person this particular promise is coming from. Currently, he is promising heaven and earth. I know that he will not even win the election. He is promising something that he cannot do. He should tell us how many people have been put behind bars,” he told Citi News.

“Even when we increased the punitive measures, no one was jailed. So I am surprised about what he is talking about. Let him come out and tell us the number of people that were jailed. He is just promising and lying to appeal to the public for votes,” he added.
