The Former President John Dramani Mahama has been asked to bow his head in shame for promoting galamsey activities in the country.
The Second Vice Chairman for Suame Constituency of New Patriotic Party (NPP), Mr Richard Akwasi Asante, who disclosed this, said there are enough evidence to prove that political campaign message on galamsey by Mahama has motivated others to do galamsey .
Speaking to a section of the media, Mr Asante, said during the 2020 election, Mr Mahama promised to grant amnesty to persons jailed for illegally mining in the country adding he will support the galamseyers if won the election.
According to him, such message gave the galamseyers an opportunity to continue with their illegal businesses since the Former President backs them.
Mr Asante disclosed that some members of opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), collectively presented 1200 cars to support Mahama’s 2020 presidential campaign.
Mr Asante described it as unfortunate and wickedness for a Former President who ought to have known better to instigate, counsel and promote illegal activities which seek to destroy the water bodies in the country.
“Mr Mahama is very wicked to promote and support galamsey knowing its wanton destruction of water bodies” Mr Asante said.
