Amewu sacks mining company from site



The Minister of Lands and Natural Resources, Peter Amewu, has ordered the Okobeng Mining company to immediately cease operation in the Nzema East Municipality of the Western Region.

The minister gave the order when he discovered that the company was mining close to the Ankobra River.

Amewu, who visited the site, also directed managers of the company report to the ministry in Accra to shed light on how they acquired a prospecting mining license without his knowledge.

“The prospecting license was given to the company three months ago when I was the substantive minister, but how come I do not know about it, when I have to sign before this license is given”, he queried.
