The flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Mahama, has served notice he will exculpate all galamsey administrators who have been detained under the Akufo-Addo government on the off chance that he returns to power.
The previous president said his move is to empower the galamseyers to return to their families and take up respectable work.
Talking at Adum Banso of the Mpohor Constituency in the Western Region, to launch day four of his mission visit to the Region, Mr Mahama expressed that it is strange to have an outsider occupied with a similar criminal behavior, delivered with no indictment or fine except for sentence “our own one of a kind people to these outcomes.”
He said he will get them back to the fields to work in a more controlled climate as caught in the NDC’s declaration.
“It’s tragic. The administration said it was battling galamsey and they captured, indicted, and imprisoned Ghanaians who were occupied with that movement however left the Chinese lady.”
“Today, they are still in jail. That Chinese galamsey-sovereign was captured however left to go free. She was never indicted yet our kin are in prison languishing.
“At the point when we come, we will concede each one of those captured and imprisoned some absolution. They will return to their homes and work. I accept that they have endured enough, demonstrated regret for whatever off-base they submitted. We have initiated measures to mind the activities of little scope mining and this will address each one of those issues that baffled the area in years past,” Mr. Mahama explained.
