Inusah Fuseini defends Mahama's amnesty for jailed small scale miners promise
A former Minister of Lands and Natural Resources, Alhaji Inusah Fuseini has defended the promise by the flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress, John Dramani Mahama to free small scale miners who were imprisoned under the Nana Akufo-Addo-led government in the wake of the fight against galamsey. John Mahama said he will grant amnesty to all small-scale miners imprisoned at the peak of the fight against galamsey if he wins the December 7 presidential election. "A small scale miner violates the law only when he operates without a license. You do not release a foreigner who has no right in the first place to engage in small-scale mining and punish those who have the right to. We need social justice as a country. People should not be discriminated against based on their colour," he added.
