Journalist, Abdul Malik Kweku Baako Jnr., has condemned the “unfair treatment” of Exton Cubic Group Ltd by the NPP Government.
The government canceled a mining lease awarded Exton Cubic Group Limited. The move came after investigations by the lands and natural resources ministry over the controversy surrounding the deal.
The company has been the talk of the day for some weeks following troubling agitations by the youth of Nyinahini over a bauxite concession leased to the company by the previous government.
The Environmental Protection Agency subsequently revoked permits granted to Exton Cubic Group Limited.
Speaking in a television interview on September 14, The Editor in chief of the New Crusading Guide newspaper described government’s handling of the issue as “untidy, unfair and dishonest.”
“The seizing of the equipment and all those things lack finesse,” Mr. Baako stressed.
He likened the Exton Cubic case to the persecution of the EO Group and other indigenous Ghanaian companies in the past, explaining the phenomenon was not new.
Mr. Baako has therefore advised Exton Cubic to resort to the court for redress.
“It’s not good enough,” Mr. Baako noted, “this matter has been poorly handled and the court may be able to determine it finally.”
