Tarkwa, Aug. 16, GNA – The Presidential
candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has
indicated that the party would not halt illegal mining operations popularly
known as “galamsey” in the Western Region when elected into power.

He said considering the staggering number of
Ghanaian’s who are involved in galamsey, the NPP would rather regularise the
operations of illegal miners to enable them operate responsibly to earn a
living.

The NPP in power would also reduce the rate
at which farm lands are destroyed and water bodies polluted in the region.

The NPP flag bearer gave the assurance when
he addressed party faithful at the fore court of the Tarkwa community centre.

He stated that to reduce poverty in the
region the one factory project in every district or municipality would be
executed as planned as well as the disabled loan made accessible to the
physically challenged.

The twice defeated NPP flag bearer said he
is the best candidate to wrest the presidency from the governing National
Democratic Congress.

He therefore commended the people of the
region for accepting the party and asked members to campaign vigorously to
ensure a sound victory in the coming elections. 

Whiles in Tarkwa, Nana Akufo-Addo and his
team, which included, Mr Alan Kyerematen, former Minister of Trade and
Industry, Mr Peter Mac Manu, Campaign Chairman of the NPP, Mr Joseph Boahene
Aidoo, former Western Regional Minister, Mr Abu Jinapor, an aid to Nana Addo
and aspiring Parliamentary candidate for Tarkwa Nsueam, Mr George Mireku Duker
and executives in the region paid courtesy call on the Zongo community.

The team earlier on worshiped with members
of the Gaddiel Acquah Methodist Cathedral and made a donation of GH¢5,000.00
towards their upcoming 47th Biennial conference.
