Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, the New Patriotic Party (NPP) flagbearer, has promised to elevate small-scale miners to millionaires if he becomes president.

During his Nationwide Tour, he spoke to a gathering of small-scale miners in the Western Region, detailing his vision to overhaul the mining sector for the benefit of local miners. He highlighted initiatives such as establishing community mining schemes in disused shafts and exploring new mining locations to generate employment opportunities and wealth for citizens.

“We will talk to the big mining companies; abandoned shafts, we will open them as community mining schemes for our people, and the new places that we will discover, we will open them. We will create jobs for our people, we will make you millionaires and we will make you rich, that is what we are going to do,” he declared.

Some small-scale miners have expressed skepticism regarding the promise. Michael Kojo Peprah, President of the Small-Scale Miners Association, dismissed Bawumia’s pledge as mere political rhetoric. He highlighted the challenges faced by small-scale miners under the current administration, including a one-year ban on their sector and the controversial Operation Vanguard.

“He was the vice president. Joe Osei Owusu told us in this country to shoot to kill small-scale miners. He never did or said anything to console us. We were here when excavators flew from Ghana into our neighbouring countries, he never said anything.

“So if you have about eight months to redeem whatever your government has done and you’ve not been able to do it, and you come back to tell us that you want to make us millionaires then we take what he said as a joke.”
