Small Scale miners to form political party

The Ghana National Association of Small Scale Miners (GNASSM) has hinted of plans to form a political party indicating that the country’s two major political parties-New Patriotic Party and the National Democratic Congress have boih failed to front for their interest.

In a statement issued and signed by members of a committee tasked to facilitate the registration of the party, it stated that there have been deliberate attempts by past and present governments to stifle our business with stringent policies, the recent being the ban on Small Scale Mining.

Nana Biribireba Boateng the Chairman of the Political Affairs Committee of the Association in an interview with RSM Kofi Doe-Lawson on the Morning ‘EBOBOBA’ on Homebase TV stated that   “We have been motivated by the over 1 million active members scattered across 8 regions of the country and concluded on forming our own political party to champion our interest”.

We have already began all the necessary legal requirements and hope to announce a name for the party in two weeks time, he added.

According to him, the political class has failed  and so will no longer sit unconcerned for their constitutional rights to be trampled upon.

They have therefore called on all well meaning Ghanaians and all those who feed from the Small Scale Mining to join their course to rescue their ‘legitimate’ business”, it stated

FORMATION OF POLITICAL PARTY – GNASSM

The Ghana National Association of Small Scale Miners (GNASSM) has taken note of the deliberate attempts by government (both NDC & NPP, past and present) to stifle our business with stringent policies, the recent being the ban on Small Scale Mining.

Our businesses have experienced yet the most tortuous times in the past nine months under President Nana Akufo Addo, who ironically trumpets his commitment to developing the private sector with friendly policies.

We have been motivated by the over 1 million active members scattered across 8 regions of the country and concluded on forming our own political party to champion our interest.

We have already began all the necessary legal requirements and hope to announce a name for the party in two weeks time.

The political class has failed us and we will no longer sit unconcerned for our constitutional rights to be trampled upon.

We wish to call on all well meaning Ghanaians and all those who feed from the Small Scale Mining to join this course to rescue our legitimate business.

Long live Small Scale Mining

Long live GNASSM

Long live Ghana

Signed

Nana Biribireba Boateng

(Chairman, Political Affairs Committee – GNASSM)
