Nzema chief vexed as Ghana gas defies high court order

The Ghana Gas Company has defied a restraining order by the Sekondi High Court in the Western region barring it from carrying on with any activity on the land on which they operate.

Last week, the court slapped an interlocutory order giving Ghana Gas 14 days to regularize their occupation of the land.

The application for injunction was filed by Omanhene of the Eastern Nzema Traditional Area, Awulae Amihere Kpanyinli III.

He told Joy News that even before the 14 days injunction expires, the company has been working on the project site.

He claimed the company has failed to pay ‘a penny’ to the traditional area and therefore thinks it is in the best interest of the people of Nzema for the gas ‘construction to be delayed’.

He told Joy News’ correspondent Kwaku Owusu Peprah ‘we have not been respected for being a good host’.

He said even though they have written to the Ghana Gas Company through their lawyers, nothing positive has come up and therefore feel they have been taken advantage of.

‘I feel very sad that we are at this point,’ he admitted, adding Ghanaians, including his subjects, are also enduring the brunt of the energy crisis.
