The flagbearer of the governing New Patriotic Party, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, has stated that seized excavators will no longer be burnt under his regime. However, the Vice President lauded the NPP administration’s fight against illegal mining, also known as galamsey. Speaking to teeming NPP supporters at a health walk in Kwahu in the Eastern region, Dr. Bawumia said the NPP has performed creditably in the galamsey fight over the last seven years. Dr. Bawumia said he will roll out a new regime to tackle the menace when elected into office. According to him, excavators for illegal mining, in the event they are seized, will no longer be burnt. “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,” the leader of the NPP told the charged crowds.
