Over five hundred youth from Tarkwa Nsuaem Municipality and adjoining communities in the Western Region have taken to the streets to demonstrate against Goldfields Company Limited.

All 216 District Directors of the National Disaster Management Organization ( NADMO) have been transferred en bloc from their current jurisdictions, Starr News has learnt.

The directors affected by the mass transfer have been given a week to report to their new locations or face sanctions.

One of the affected directors who spoke to Starr News on condition of anonymity said they suspect ill-motives in the action that has been taken by their management because no transfer grant has been given to them to move to the new locations.

Energy Analyst Kojo Opoku has praised Ghana’s new oil deal with Exxonmobil Corp, describing it as the ‘best deal’. President Akufo-Addo after a meeting with officials of Exxon Mobil Thursday urged the company to help develop Ghana’s oil sector.

The signing followed direct negotiations between Ghana and Exxon Mobil without an open competitive tender due to the nature of the field, where the depth ranges from 2,000 to 4,000 meters.

The deal which yet to be approved by Parliament is the first to be signed after the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea last September drew an ocean boundary favoring Ghana in a dispute with its neighbor Ivory Coast.
