Mame Yaa Aboagye Applauds President On New Initiative To Improve Ghana’s Mining Sector

Deputy Communications Director of the NPP, Mame Yaa Aboagye has applauded President Akufo-Addo over his initiative to provide small-scale miners with alternative employment and livelihood opportunities in the mining sector.

NPP government set up a Committee called Inter-ministerial Committee on Illegal Mining to clamp down on illegal mining, locally called ‘galamsey’, which has been destroying the country’s water bodies and lands and also badly affect the mining communities.

It’s under this notion that President Nana Akufo-Addo has launched the National Alternative Employment and Livelihood Programme (NAELP) in Western Region to support small-scale miners and persons who have been affected by the ban on illegal mining in about five Regions across the country.

President Akufo-Addo over the years has introduced many initiatives for the betterment of the people of Ghana including Free SHS, Planting for Food and Jobs, One District, One Factory among others.

The NAELP is an initiative to reduce the burden of the people in the mining communities.

“This is a laudable initiative and we should encourage people in the mining communities to support and sign on to this scheme so as to help sanitize the environment to help the country enjoy clean water. NPP is still working and will continue to work for the betterment of every Ghana,” she said.
