GNPC Heightens Efforts To Revive Prestea Sankofa Gold Mines
Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC) has intensified its efforts to revive the ailing state-owned mining company; Prestea Sankofa Gold Mines. The goal is to get the company back to full operation soon. This forms part of plans to help create jobs for Ghanaians, and also to generate revenue for the country.
The President of the Western Region House of Chiefs, Ogyeahoho) Yaw Gyebi II, who is a member of the GNPC Board, together with some management members of the company have met with workers of the company to deliberate on the current state of the company, and how the GNPC can help the company regain it prominence.

Speaking on the Jolly Breakfast Show, Friday June, 22, Ogyeahoho) Yaw Gyebi revealed that machines and equipment of the company are currently in bad state, and the GNPC Board will deliberate on it to find a better way of dealing with the situation. He mentioned that, the company is currently in debt and as a result, workers have been laid-off due to nonpayment of salaries.

“We don’t know the efficiency of the machine for now, but looking at it from afar, machines that have not been used for a period of three years would definitely be rusty. We’ve been given the assurance that it can be repaired so we will sit down today to put our reports together, which we will forward to the board.That will help us decide whether to maintain these equipment or purchase new ones. There are a lot of problems, including unpaid salaries of worries and interest on loans,” he said.

He added that, the GNPC is willing to take immediate steps to remedy the situation in which the company finds itself, as soon as the reports get to the Board. According to the venerable traditional ruler, some of the measures that the GNPC has to put in place to salvage the current condition of the company includes the payment of salaries of workers and debts owed by the company, getting access to raw materials and providing good management for the company. The strategy to deal with these challenges, according to Ogyeahoho) Yaw Gyebi II, would take a period of three months before immediate reforms can start.

“The assurance we have for them is that, any measure we have to put in place to revive the company will be taken but this does not mean it would be done within this month. We have to make sure every damaged material is repaired, workers are paid, and court issues with banks are dealt with. This will neither take a year too. We want to use a period of three months to plan how to solve these problems before we can come out to announce the commencement of operations,” he said.
