“We won’t stop mining, we’ll extract the resources. The extraction isn’t the dilemma but the method is the problem.”

 

“If anyone promises to stop mining in Ghana, that person is a liar.” Asiedu Nketiah emphatically stated when speaking on Kumasi based Oyerapa Fm.

 

The NDC General Secretary continued that his party would implement steps to ensure sustainable mining if elected in 2024 since so many young people in mining towns rely on the industry for their livelihood.
