DONT EVER DREAM OF VICTORY IN 2020- SMALL SCALE MINERS DARE NPP M.P ASPIRANTS
Aspiring NPP MP’s for the 2020 General Elections in the 73 mining districts of Ghana will be compelled to go the “extra mile” to achieve victory due to threats by small scale miners.
Gold Coast Small Scale Miners group who issued the threat have started a campaign to canvass all small scale miners and their dependants to vote against NPP MP aspirants over what they describe as neglect.
They contend that, they are surprised and worried about the attitude of MP’s in the mining districts especially those in the ruling government (NPP) for deciding to remain silent over the ban on small scale mining activities by government.
According to them, throughout the almost two year span of the ban, these MP’s whom they claim benefit from their sponsorship and support have rejected them to their fate hence this decision.
They are of the view that, the resultant effect of the ban which has rendered almost every small scale miner of meaningful life will also affect their fortunes in 2020.
